Product Description

Grow The Most Popular Asian Pear!

Everything about this tree is great. The 20th Century Asian Pear, or Nijisseiki as it is often called, is the perfect ornamental fruit tree for your yard. The fruit is incredibly delicious, nutritious and easy to grow. As an added benefit, you'll get a show stopping ornamental during every season.

Asian pears bring together the best of the apple and pear into one fruit. The 20th Century Asian pear smells just like a pear, but, like an apple, the outside of the fruit is crisp, firm and round. The flavor is like a pumped up pear, sweeter and warmer, but the flesh is smooth and incredibly juicy. There's a reason they call Asian pears "apple pears!"

Unlike many other fruit trees, you don't need to fuss with the 20th Century Asian Pear. With only a little pruning, you'll have a bountiful harvest of fresh, ripe fruit every single year. The harvest is simple because you can just pull the pear right off the tree and eat it.

You'll get more and more fruit every single year. The harvest of the 20th Century Asian pear grows over time, so you'll start out with a small harvest in the 2nd season and then every single year you'll likely get double or triple the fruit you had from the previous year. The Nijisseiki is self-fertile, but if you plant it alongside the other pear trees in your yard, each tree will produce even more harvest!

A big harvest doesn't mean wasted fruit. The 20th Century Asian Pear is one of the most durable fruits available after it has ripened. When it easily pulls off the tree, you can pick the fruit and store it in your fridge. It can stay there for up to six months without going bad. The Nijisseiki also makes the perfect canning and freezing fruits because their flesh is so dense and firm. You'll think of plenty of uses for your Asian pears and when you run out of ideas, you can just store them and enjoy them for the rest of the year.

The fruit is obviously a huge benefit, but that's not all you'll get out of this tree. In early spring, the 20th Century presents dramatic, showy, bright white blooms. The huge blooms contrast beautifully against the dark, glossy leaves and will fill your yard with an undeniably sweet fragrance.

You'll event get a gorgeous show in the fall. Just in time to harvest your delicious fruit, the 20th Century Asian Pear tree has one more gift for you. The dark, handsome leaves turn into a stunning fire-red when autumn arrives. Just imagine walking out to your tree and picking your pears from between the striking fall foliage.

The pears are sweet, but you don't need to feel bad for eating them. With very low calories and very high fiber counts, you'll feel full and satisfied without the guilt. The sweet, juicy treat is packed full of the nutritional benefits of Vitamin K, Copper and Potassium. Plus, it's a hypoallergenic food that's low in acidity. Sensitive eaters need not worry!

Start growing your sweet, juicy pears today. You don't want to miss the opportunity to have this tempting fruit in your garden. With very little effort, you'll get so much in return. Asian pear trees are becoming more popular each year, so don't miss out on your chance to find out why!

Pollination Info

20th Century (Nijisseiki) Asian Pear Pollination

20th Century (Nijisseiki) Asian Pears are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional 20th Century (Nijisseiki) Asian Pear will drastically increase the size of your crop.

Planting & Care

Planting Instructions: Plant your 20th Century Asian Pear tree in a hole twice as wide and nearly as deep as the root's ball. You'll need to place it in a spot in your garden that gets full sun. If you get frost in the spring, be sure to cover your plant and provide a small heat source like a lamp. The 20th Century will need around 400 hours of chill time in temperatures above freezing, but below 45

So far so good....

The plant arrived in good condition. It looks healthy but after several months I have had no new growth. Just the original leaves, which stay green and look healthy.
