Shinsui Pear on Betulaefolia (Spring 2021)


A high-quality, early-midseason Asian pear.

This tree is very vigorous and upright; limb spreading is recommended to open up the tree. It is not self-fertile, and a pollination partner will be needed. Shinsui has moderate resistance to fireblight, but it is susceptible to pseudomonas.

The fruit is smallish, with an attractive light yellow-orange skin. The flesh is fine-textured, crisp, and juicy, and the flavor is exceptional–sweet and musky, it can be intensely aromatic. This is my dad's favorite Asian pear. The fruit ripens around the same time as Bartlett and will hold up in storage for about six weeks.

Shinsui is a cross of Kikusui and Kimizukawase that was developed in Japan in 1965. It has become a popular cultivar in New Zealand, Italy, and California. The name translates as "New Juice."
