Niitaka Asian Pear

Pyrus pyrifolia 'Niitaka'
  • Summary
  • Hardiness Zone & More

Niitaka Asian Pear is heavily russeted with an orange brown color.  It has excellent size.  The fruit is juicy and sweet, and has more texture than most other asian pears.  It will keep in storage for up to four months.  The tree is more spurry and dense growing than other pears. 

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