Short Description

The finest-tasting Asian pear: with pearlike sweetness and applelike crunch.

Full Description

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.

  • Pear, Asian Hosui is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! I was extremely pleased with the bareroot tree that arrived at my door. Having ordered from online nurseries before, I had low expectations about what would arrive. Not only was it delivered within a few days but it was huge. It was a beautiful healthy bareroot branch of about 5 feet. Well packaged with lots of wet soil and shavings and in a large box. I planted it immediately and within 10 days I have multiple areas of sprouting leaves.
