Pears have been grown in East Asia for over a millennium. Asian pears are notable for their crisp texture and sweet juiciness. These trees do best in a full sun location, growing to 15-20' tall at maturity. Asian pears are hardy to USDA zones 5-9. Most trees are self-fertile, meaning that a solitary tree will produce fruit, though yields are increased with cross pollination between two different cultivars.
We offer several Chinese and Japanese cultivars grafted onto cold hardy rootstock. Order now for SPRING or FALL 2018 shipping.
