Shinsui Asian Pear


Shinsui Asian Pear

Pyrus pyrifolia Summer. Kikusi x Kimizukawase. Hort Res Stn, Yatabe, Japan, 1967.

Medium-sized round-oblate yellowish-brown russeted fruit with crisp juicy fine-textured very sweet flesh. One of the earliest to ripen each year. Pennsylvania grower and Asian pear aficionado Ike Kerschner considers this a great pear. Keeps about 6 weeks in refrigeration. Shinsui is translated as ‘new water,’ ‘adoration,’ ‘inundation’ and more. It is also the pseudonym of one of Japan’s most famous 20th-c. artists, Ito Shinsui (1888-1972). Z4/5. (2½-6' bare-root trees)

Additional Information

Asian Pears

Although partly self-fruitful, pollinators are recommended. The varieties we offer will pollinate one another. Some European pears, notably Bartlett, will also act as pollinators. Plant 15–20' apart.
