Pear, Asian Hosui

The finest-tasting Asian pear: with pearlike sweetness and applelike crunch.
Pear aficionados—and who is not?—agree ‘Hosui’ boasts the finest flavor of any Asian pear. Very round, medium to large fruit, with golden russet skins and firm, juicy, sweet-tart flesh, mingles pearlike sweetness with applelike crunch. Columnar, deciduous trees quickly grow to 10-15 ft. tall and 8-12 ft. wide. Produce a flourish of lovely showy white flowers, often arrayed with a flutter of butterflies. Fruit ripens from mid-August to late September. Self pollinating. Cold hardy, drought resistant and heat tolerant, a good choice for milder climates. Chilling requirements of 450 hours below 45°F.
