Hosui Asian Pear Tree

Pyrus pyrifolia ‘Hosui’

  • Ships week of Mar 18
  • Shipped to you in our Drop 'N Grow™

    The benefits of the Drop ‘N Grow™ bag…

    By growing these trees in burlap bags, the roots grow into the cloth, rather than circling around a pot. This forces these trees to put out thousands of fine hair roots. These roots bring moisture and nutrients into the plants. This means you get a tree that will become established quicker and provide you with superior and faster growth.

    These will be the easiest trees you have ever planted! Simply dig your hole, place the Drop 'N Grow™ bag in the center (burlap included) then use excess dirt to fill the hole. That's it!

Sweet Juicy Pear is Crisp Like an Apple

The Hosui pear is consistently awarded “best tasting pear” by growers and consumers! They’re large, juicy and round, like an apple, not “pear-shaped.”  Another similarity to apples – they have a crispy texture. While they start out pale green, like your typical pear, they turn a golden, bronze hue as they ripen.

Cold Hardy. Heat Tolerant. Easy to Grow

Hosui Pears are cold hardy and will thrive as far north as Zone 5.  You can grow them in warmer climates with ease - all the way to zone 10, as they’re heat tolerant, and drought resistant!   

You’ll get a large harvest your very first summer. 

Your Hosui Pear tree has been nurtured by our growers for years.  We don’t ship them until they’re mature and ready to provide fruit.  You can expect them to peak in mid-August.  These pears ripen on the tree and keep up to two months.

More Than a Pear Tree – It’s a Striking Ornamental!

You’ll enjoy watching all the visual transitions your tree goes through!  In early spring, it will produce dainty white flowers on the branches before it starts to leaf.  The glossy, dark green foliage that emerges quickly changes to a coppery bronze color in mid spring. The outstanding fruit comes in mid-late summer, and as autumn approaches, the tree will reward you with bright red leaves

A Healthy Twist

Eating healthy has never tasted so good!  Hosui Pears are only around 50 calories and are a good source of vitamin C as well as fiber.  The Hosiu Pear adds a special zest to salads and are exquisitely paired with all types of cheese.  

While the Hosui Pear is one of the best fruits picked straight from the tree – their sweet and tart undertones make them impeccable in pies and deliciously add moisture to baked bread and muffins. 

Order your own Hosui Pear tree and you’ll have crisp, juicy, healthy pears the very next summer! 

Hosui Asian Pear Tree Pollination

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Hosui Asian Pear Tree

Hosui Asian Pear Tree Planting Diretions

Location: The Asian Pear ‘Hosui’ grows best in USDA plant hardiness zones 5 to 9. The tree grows to a height of 10 to 15 feet with a canopy width of 8 to 12 feet. Unlike other pear trees, the Hosui has a willowy type growth. Space the trees 15 feet apart or away from structures to provide ample growth room.


Chill Hours: Hosui Asian pear trees require 400-500 chill hours to set fruit.


Pollinators: The Hosui tree is somewhat self-fertile but to produce an adequate crop of fruit the tree requires a pollinator. Try the Bartlett or the 20th Century pear trees for pollination. Plant the trees 25-50 feet apart to ensure pollination.


Planting Instructions: Choose a planting location in full sun for best fruit production. The ideal planting site should have well-draining loamy soil with a pH balance of 6.0 to 7.0. Plant the tree in the early spring to provide it with sufficient time to establish a root system before winter.


Dig a hole twice the size of the tree’s roots and just as deep. Place the tree’s roots into the hole and gently spread them out across the soil’s surface. Fill the hole with an an organic rich topsoil. The tree’s graft bud should sit 2 to 3 inches above the soil’s line after the hole is backfilled in with the topsoil. Tamp the soil down around the tree’s roots to remove any air pockets. Water the tree thoroughly after planting to settle the soil and remove any air pockets.


Irrigation: Irrigate the Asian pear tree when the top 2 to 3 inches of soil feels dry to the touch. Once established, the tree will require 100 gallons of water per week during periods of hot, dry spells. Simply place your garden hose at the base of the tree on a trickle and allow it to stay there for roughly an hour to ensure it irrigates deeply.


Fertilizing: Fertilize the pear tree for the first time one month after planting. Use half  a pound of 10-10-10 fertilizer. Sprinkle around the base at least 16 inches away from the tree’s trunk and water well.


Pruning: The Hosui pear tree should be trained to a central leader system and requires very little pruning. Suckers should be removed as they form.

Can asian pear bear fruit in a pot?
scotty on Apr 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I don't see why not. I planted mine in the ground, but as long as you have the right soil and drainage, it should be OK. I would probably select a very large pot for ample root growth.
