Caramel Flavored Pears

Olympic Giant Asian Pears are massive! This new variety out of South Korea produces softball sized, perfectly round 1 pound pears. The tree looks like it’s covered in dozens of globe shaped ornaments every Fall.

You will rave about the flavor, somewhere between caramel and butterscotch. People are finding all kinds of new ways to cook with this surreal flavor. There are pear cobblers and pies like none other, delicious marinades, plus fresh slices over salads. Kids love Asian pear sauce and healthy baked pear chips. The favorite of all is enjoying the extremely crisp, juicy fruit right off the tree.

Olympic Giant Asian Pears are not just grown for their size and flavor… they are also twice as sweet as common pears. Despite the high sugar content, Olympic Giant’s can last 6 months in the fridge allowing you to enjoy your harvest longer.

Other nurseries cut costs by not grafting, or grafting to cheap rootstock. We went above and beyond for you finding a rootstock resistant to diseases like: crown rot, fire blight, pear leaf spot and oak root fungus while still maintaining good cold hardiness. This means you get a no-spray, no-fuss pear that is naturally hardier for organic gardening.

This is extremely critical for west coast growers where fire blight has claimed hundreds of orchards.

Why spend the effort to grow tiny pears when you can harvest record setting pears by the bucket?

Growing Zone:
The tree was the right hight and in fairly decent condition, but the main body of the tree had a large bow in it. Based on this and the additional trees purchased I would not recommend fast growing trees.

Planting & Care

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

Step 1: Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Olympic Giant Asian Pear Tree.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Olympic Giant Asian Pear Tree gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Olympic Giant Asian Pear Tree again after the transplant is complete.

how many years for it to bear fruit? does it need a pollinator?

BEST ANSWER: It is self-fertile, but will produce a better yield of fruit if it has a mate. It can take 4-6 years to bear fruit.
Is this tree (Olympic Giant Asian Pear) self pollinating or do I need to buy more than one for cross pollination?
