Shimmer Sleek Shinseiki Asian Pear

  • Deliciously Juicy Fruit
  • Bears A Crop During The 2 Or 3 Year
  • Resists Most Diseases
  • Winters Well

Why wait years to enjoy this deliciously juicy pear? The Shinseiki Asian Pear (Pyrus pyrifolia 'Shinseiki') bears fruit in the second or third year, so you could be harvesting up to 100 pears in just a few short years. But don't forget that the yield will increase each year, so as time passes, you will be enjoying enormous crops that you will love to share with family and friends.

The Shinseiki Asian Pear was developed in the 1940s and gives you lemon-yellow pears with just a hint of russet. These fruit are medium to large, and like Asian pears, they are round. They are crisper and crunchier than their European cousins and are sweet with a mild and delicate pear flavor. So bite into one of these crisp and juicy pears straight from the tree or bake them into crisp or cobbler. You can even dice them and add them to coleslaw for a delicious dish. But don't forget that they store well in the refrigerator, so save a few for a cool, crisp snack.

The Shinseiki Asian Pear blooms early, and the beautiful white blossoms with pink anthers will fill the air with a fragrant aroma that will tickle your nose and delight your imagination. This variety will self-pollinate, but you will get larger crops if you pair it with another Asian variety or early blooming European variety.

Once you plant your Shinseiki Asian Pear it will grow vigorously, reaching a manageable height. Once established, this pear tree requires little work because it resists most diseases and tolerates cold winters well. Its fruit ripens early, and it produces a large crop with regularity. Its fruit lasts well on the tree, as well, so you can pick ripe fruit multiple times. And between the spring bloom and the fall harvest, you can enjoy its foliage which is deep green, turning vibrant reddish-orange in the fall

Your Shinseiki Asian Pear loves full sun but will tolerate partial sun. It does well in a variety of soil types, but make sure it is in a spot that drains well. You should water it weekly, more often in hot, dry weather.

The sooner you order your Shinseiki Asian Pear, the sooner you will be enjoying your bountiful harvest--your mature tree will provide more pears than you can count, and the Shinseiki Asian Pear can live up to 50 years, you will have these wonderful pears for decades.
