First Editions®Tawara Asian Pear

Fruiting Asian pear grown mainly for its edible fruit, has an upright oval form with glossy green foliage which looks great all season long. White flowers in spring make way to the unusual dark tan to light brown fruit, tasting like a cross between apple and pear, with crispy texture. Asian pear cultivars are partially self-fruitful but better crops are set where two or more cultivars are planted together. European pears or Asian pears, such as Seckle, Bosc or Bartlett, can be used for pollination. Excellent for fresh eating or canning. Discovered by Jeanne & Jim Matsuda of Park Creek Nursery.

When I shopped at Zehr’s I was greeted by a worker with the friendly, “Is there anything I can help you with?” greeting and then escorted to the area where the specific shrub I was looking for was located. It saved me time and I greatly appreciated that!
