ℹ The amazing and unique Asian Pear Buffet Tree offers 4 varieties of Asian pears all on one tree! Asian Pears are also known as Pear Apples because they are shaped more like an apple than a pear and they feature the best qualities of apples and pears! These fruits are a crunchy, sweet member of the pear family. The Asian Pear Buffet Tree contains 4 of the following varieties grafted onto one tree, Chojuro, Shinseiki, Nijiseiki, Shinko or Kosui Asian pears. This fully self pollinating tree will provide all the pears you need for fresh eating, cooking, and preserves.
ℹ Chojuro: Keeps for up to 20 weeks. A popular variety known for its butterscotch flavor. Green to yellow-brown skin surrounds crisp, juicy, flavorful white flesh. Similar to grocery store Asian pears, but homegrown tastes so much better! Pick when first yellow-brown in color. Originates from Japan in 1895. Ripens in late August.
ℹ Shinseiki: This pear features a sweet flavor that makes it ideal for salads and snacks. Fruit is round, but sometimes lopsided, with a long stem. Thin, bright-yellow skin surrounds cream-colored, crisp, juicy flesh. Picks earlier than Chojuro variety. Heat and cold tolerant. Originates from Japan in 1945. Ripens in mid August.
ℹ Nijiseiki: An absolutely delicious variety that produces an abundance of juicy yellow fruit. Arguably the sweetest and juiciest Asian Pear produced today. In fact, these little pears are so juicy that their flavor and texture is actually much closer to a watermelon than traditional pears!
ℹShinko: Shinko pears have a very sweet, floral-forward flavor with tangy citrus undertones and lingering notes of butterscotch. Large, juicy fruits with a rounded shape and attractive, golden-bronze skin. Shinko pears are ready for harvest from mid-July through September.
ℹ Kosui: Considered by some to be one of the best tasting of all Asian pears, Kosui fruits are medium to large in size and brown-skinned. It has a delightfully crisp texture with a sweet and spicy flavor and a pleasant aromatic scent. Kosui is a good producer and its fruit typically ripens around mid to late September.
