Nothing surpasses the sweet, delicate flavor and crisp, juicy texture of home-grown Asian pears. Often considered gourmet delicacies and found only in upscale supermarkets, they are sometimes called apple pears because of their round shape. Asian pears should be allowed to ripen on the tree for best quality. They're also attractive 10 to 15 foot tall landscape trees with their abundant white flowers in spring and large foliage. Trees bear fruit 2 to 3 years after planting. Our Asian pears are budded on hardy rootstocks. Not self-fruitful, so plant two varieties for pollination.
