Hosui Asian Pear Tree
Crisp, golden orbs.
Blooms early - mid spring
Hosui is a fabulous Asian Pear, smaller than Olympic, with a greener tint to the skin, and a brighter, lighter pear flavor that has less of a "maple syrup" undertone. It comes earlier in the season, as well, and though it doesn't store quite as well, the fruit are tasty enough that eating them up quickly usually isn't a problem. (And their smaller size makes that a less intimidating a prospect than with Olympic!)
These are two-year-old, bare-root trees from our farm partner, Full Circus Farm, in Pine Plains, NY.
All of our pear trees are offered on OHxF 97 root stock. OHxF 97 leads to "standard" fruit tree size, 18-20 feet high, and is a vigorous, hardy root stock that boasts resistance to fire blight.
At this time, all of our bare-root fruit trees are offered for local pick up only, at our Accord, NY location.

Choose a site in full sun, with relatively well-drained soil. Plant your tree as soon as possible after pick up, and soak the roots in water a few hours before planting. Dig a hole that will accommodate the roots when they are spread out, plus a little extra room. When planting, keep the tree perpendicular to the ground, and keep the graft a few inches above the soil. Spread the roots out and gently fill in with soil all around. Tamp the soil down and water in very well. Keep well-watered and mulched while young trees are getting established.
