Crunchy, Mild-Flavored Shinseiki Pear
- Heavy Bearing
- Cold Hardy
- Adaptive To A Variety Of Soils
Pear lovers herald the Shinseiki Asian Pear Tree (Pyrus 'Shinseiki') for its abundance of crisp, super crunchy pears that keep for a long time after harvest. If you love the taste of pear with a crunch that's similar to an Apple, then this variety is for you.
Our Shinseiki Asian Pear Tree turns out a heavy, early harvest with minimal effort. The tree is easy to grow in Zones 5-9, making it a favorite among property owners looking for a staple fruit tree to cherish for years to come. It hard to beat this easy-to-eat pear plucked straight from the tree during the long days of summer.
You don't want to miss the beautiful show the Shinseiki Asian Pear presents when it's laden with oodles of round, yellow-skinned pears. It grows naturally to a lovely conical shape, and each spring, this semi-dwarf becomes laden with beautiful and fragrant flowers. As the pears ripen, you'll conjure up images of Christmas ornaments hanging from a holiday tree, each of them a delicious "present" waiting to be devoured.
If you prefer a Granny Smith Apple over a Red Delicious, then you'll be an instant fan of the Shinseiki Asian Pear. The meat of this pear is extra crunchy and super juicy, and the mild, sweet flavor with a touch of acidity is nothing short of sublime. Reach for this pear variety for making fruit salads, crisps, cobblers and slaws, or make them your go-to for homemade preserves. No pear variety keeps longer than the Shinseiki Asian Pear. You can store these pears for months in the refrigerator without sacrificing quality or fresh taste.
Young trees will produce up to 100 fruit, while 6-7 year old trees produce 500-700 Pears each year! You'll be a hit at your local farmers market, but only if you order yours today!
