Pyrus pyrifolia 'Shinseiki'
Homeowner Growing and Maintenance Tips

Shinseiki trees are vigorous, healthy and spreading not not as susceptible to fire blight as many regular pears. Thin the fruit heavily to singles for best fruit size. Clip or cut off when thinning or harvesting to avoid pulling the stem out or damaging the fruit.

A Little History about Shinseiki Asian Pear

Shinseiki means "New Century" in Japanese, and since it is similar in appearance to Twentieth Century, perhaps this is why it was so named. It was released in 1945.
