Dont’t be confused by the unusual, Chinese name Nashi (Pyrus pyrifolia var. culta): translated it just means ‘pear’ and that is why it is also called Asian Pear. Another name, apple pear, originates from the round, apple-sized fruits. These have a grainy, crisp and white fruit pulp that tastes juicy, sweet and refreshing at the same time- better than any pear or apple altogether. The fruits will stay fresh for weeks in a refrigerator and also look very pretty: the peel changes its colour to copper- or gold-coloured when ripened and is covered with many small, almost glittering dots (lenticels). Nashi already bears fruits in early years and is a winter hardy plant suitable for the garden. They can easily manage sunny as well as half-shady situations as long as the soil provides a certain basic moisture also in summer (otherwise watering is necessary). The white flowers are self-fertile and one plant is sufficient for an annual harvest. However, the amount and size of fruits can be increased with a second variety.
