Olympic Pear on OHxF 87 (Spring 2022)

You are viewing a tree that will ship in Spring 2022. You can also find trees for Spring 2021.

A huge, late-season nashi pear that stores well. Also known as Korean Giant, Large Korean, Dan Beh.

Cold hardy and precocious, this tree is fireblight resistant and can be cultivated successfully without sprays. As with all Asian pears, fruit thinning will help maintain annual bearing and fruit size, and it will prevent limb breakage from overcropping. Olympic is not self-fertile, and it will need a pollination partner.

The Asian pear season goes out with a bang. Ripening in October, Olympic is a huge, beautiful pear that can weigh as much as a pound. This grapefruit-sized fruit is covered in orange russet and the flesh is crisp, juicy, and very very sweet. You can enjoy this treat for a long time; it will store for up to five months after harvest.
