Shinseiki asian pear trees

Pyrus pyrifolia
  • Picking season: Early
  • Self-fertility: Partially self-fertile
  • Flowering group: 2

Shinseiki is one of the most popular of the early-season Asian or Nashi pear varieties, ripenening in late August / early September.

The large fruits are a pale yellow colorr, flecked with lenticels. The bright white flesh is firm, sweet and juicy.

Shinseiki is also an attractive ornamental tree. The young leaves emerge bronze before turning green, and then taking on autumnal tints in the autumn. The flowers are quite large, and the fruits also add to the ornamental appeal.

Growing and Training

Shinseiki is partially to fully self-fertile and does not need another pollinator.  However it will cross-pollinate with most other Asian pears, and also many European pears if they flower in the middle of the pear blossom season.

As with all Asian pears, Shinseiki does best if planted in full sun.

Once the tree starts bearing, thin the fruitlets in June, allowing one fruitlet per cluster. Shinseiki will readily over-crop and if you do not thin, you will end up with lots of small flavor-less fruits.
