Thank you so much for my lovely apple tree, I ordered it Sunday and despite being the middle of the Christmas rush it arrived Wednesday. It's a wonderful healthy looking tree, I just hope I don't kill it. I will definitely be back to buy more items in the spring.

Pollinator Friendly

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.

  • 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 mid August - 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.

Available from approximately mid May 2018
