Pollinator Friendly

Small, round, copper-bronze coloured fruit have an attractive russet appearance and a slightly flattened shape. The skin is thin and tender.

Asian Pears (sometimes known as Nashi, Sand, Oriental, Chinese or Sahli Pears) have been popular on the Continent for many years but are virtually unknown in the UK. From our own experiences we would say they are just as reliable as conventional pears - if not more so. A very worthwhile subject for the garden indeed and one we highly recommend.

Strong growing and vigorous in habit.

  • Despite being recognised as Self Sterile these actually prove to be partially self fertile and can produce small crops without a pollinator - though pollination by another Pear (Asian or a conventional European variety) will maximise yield.
  • Grown on Pyrus betulifolia rootstock for an ultimate (un-pruned) height of 8 - 12 feet (2.4 - 3.65 metres) but can easily be kept at a height of 6 - 8 feet (1.8 - 2.4 metres).
  • Harvest approximately mid - late July. The fruit is ripe when it pulls easily from the tree.

Recommended by the RHS to be an excellent attractant and nectar source for bees and other beneficial insects.

Recommended by the RHS to assist in encouraging bats into the garden as the flowers are likely to attract moths and other night-flying insects which bats love to eat!
