The fruits of asian pears resemble apples more than their European counterparts, and have a milder flavour and a crisp texture. They store very well, and will last most of a winter in good condition in a root cellar. Two different varieties are required for cross-pollination. Ours are on OHxF-97 full-sized rootstock.
Chojuro – Bears apple-shaped, brown-skinned fruit with very sweet & crunchy flesh. Keeps all winter.
Ping-Guo-Li – Produces fruit with very sweet flesh and nice, crunchy texture.
