Originating from Japan in about 1900 (hence its other name of '20th Century), this is often recognised as the most flavoursome of all Asian Pears. The rounded yellow fruit have thin skins and a fresh and juicy pear flavour with a pleasantly sharp finish.

Asian (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.

Disease resistant.

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!
