Go Back Pear Tawara Asian

Pyrus 'Tawara Oriental'

Plant Type: Fruit Trees

Fruiting Asian Pear grown mainly for its edible fruit, has an upright oval form with glossy green foliage which looks great all season long.  White flowers in spring make way to the unusual dark tan to light brown fruit, tasting like a cross between an apple and a pear, with crispy texture.  Asian pear cultivars are partially self-fruitful  but better crops are set where two or more cultivars are planted  together.  Plant near any other pear for good pollination.  Excellent for fresh eating and canning.
