Hosui Asian Pear

Pyrus pyrifolia 'Hosui'

SKU
06163
The best flavored of all Asian Pears, Hosui are very round, medium to large, and combining the flavor and sweetness of Pears with the crunchiness of crisp Apples. Their mild flavor is sweet and slightly tart. It needs other Pear trees to pollinate such as 20th Century or Bartlett. Cold hardy, drought resistant and heat tolerant, Hosui is a good choice for milder climates as it requires only 450 low chilling hours. Vigorous willowy growth habit.
