SpecificationsA most popular Asian pear variety producing, round apple like fruit with yellowish-green skin and mildly sweet, crisp white flesh. The fruit is ideal for plucking straight off the branch and eating fresh, cooking in desserts and for preserving. The tree itself is deciduous with a dense, upright, spreading habit. Nijisseiki is a great tree for small garden, ideal for planting in backyards, large pots and containers or trained as an espalier. Plant in an area of full sun, although they can tolerate partial sun. This variety prefers light, rich soils with good drainage but will tolerate heavier, clay-rich soils. Nijisseiki requires moderate maintenance. Protect from pear and cherry slug. Mulch well to conserve moisture. Prune after harvest to manage branch growth and to prevent overcrowding. It will benefit from cross-pollination, including varieties such as Williams and Sensation. Nashi Nijisseiki can grow to a height of 8 metres and a width of 4 metres.
