Pyrus pyrifolia var. culta - Nashi Tree

In Winter a delay in delivery may appear because of night temperature! The weight of the plant in kg corresponds with the capacity of the pot in liter.

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.
