Juicy Jewel™ Pear on OHxF 87 (Spring 2025)

You are viewing a tree that will ship in Spring 2025. You can also find trees for Spring 2024.

A cold-hardy Asian-type pear developed by the University of Minnesota. Also known as MN 121.

Juicy Jewel™ is very winter hardy and will be pollinated by a wide range of pears, including Summercrisp, one of its parents. This tree has demonstrated good resistance to fireblight. 

Ripening around a month earlier than other Asian pears, this is a small, perfectly snackable Asian-type pear, with a remarkable, tropical flavor. The flesh is crisp, juicy, and sweet. The fruit does not require post-harvest ripening, and it will store for up to three months. 

This is the first Asian-type pear developed by the University of Minnesota. It is a cross between Shinseiki and Summercrisp.
