Tawara Asian Pear

Pyrus 'Tawara Oriental'

$ 47.99 USD

This Asian pear, grown mainly for its edible fruit, has an upright oval form with glossy green foliage which looks great all season long. White flowers in spring make way to the unusual dark tan to light brown fruit, tasting like a cross between apple and pear, with crisp texture. Asian pear cultivars are partially self-fruitful but better crops are set where two or more cultivars are planted together. European pears or Asian pears, such as 'Seckel', 'Bos'c or 'Bartlett', can be used for pollination. Excellent for fresh eating or canning. Discovered by Jeanne & Jim Matsuda of Park Creek Nursery.
