Grow the Most Popular Asian Pear

Why 20th Century (Nijisseiki) Asian Pear Trees?

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.

Why is Better

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!

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 Tree Pollination

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

Planting & Care

1. Planting: 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.

2. Watering: Water your tree once weekly, or ensure that the surrounding two inches of soil stays moist but well-drained.

3. Fertilizing: Use a fruit-specific fertilizer every spring and follow label instructions.

New member to the FGT club!

I purchased 2 trees,Stella cherry and 20th century Asian pear. My God!!! When I tell you how pleasantly surprised I was when I saw how beautiful and healthy looking my trees were! I was dancing of joy. They sent me 2 taller than expected trees and that's the kind of surprise I love when it comes to tree shopping. I have them in 15 gallon pots for now and they're doing wonderful.I'm hooked.
