Pyrus pyrifolia 'Niitaka'
Homeowner Growing and Maintenance Tips

Niitaka is one of the larger asian pears.  If it needs to be thinned, we suggest you clip or cut the stems when thinning or harvesting, since they will not "pop" off the limb like regular pears.  Asian pears in general seem to have less problems with pear diseases than most pears.  The trees are vigorous and upright growing.


A Little History about Niitaka Asian Pear

Unfortuately Grandpa doesn't know his foreign languages very well, so he doesn't know what Niitaka means in its home country--- darn!
