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 pear-like sweetness with apple-like crunch. Columnar, deciduous tree quickly grows to 10-15 ft. tall and 8-12 ft. wide. Produces 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. Root stock OHxF333.
