Hosui is an early-season Asian or Nashi pear, sometimes considered to have the best flavour of any Asian pear variety.
The flesh is very juicy, crisp, and very sweet.
Hosui will not store as well as other Asian pear varieties, perhaps 1-2 months in the fridge - but this is a small price to pay for such excellent flavour.
Custom graft varieties: Order before end of December 2023 for delivery in December 2024.
Let me know when Hosui asian pear trees are back in stock.
If you do not hear from us by March you can contact us to pre-order for next autumn.
Hosui grows with a spreading habit, becoming semi-weeping as it gets older.
Hosui is a relatively new variety, and was introduced in the 1970s by the National Horticulture Research Station, Tsukuba, Japan.
