Deliciously Sweet CA Pears, Low in Acidity
Why Shinseiki Asian Pear Trees?
One variety in a vast category of Asian pears, the Shinseiki is a medium-sized, round pear that's tasty when crisp at harvest, as well as ripened to a softer texture after many months in cold storage.
These winter-hardy pears, deliciously sweet and low in acidity, are ideal for nearly any climate. Plus, the Shinseiki is a heavy producer, giving you bushels of juicy pears that are home-grown, right from your California backyard.
Why FastGrowingTrees.com is Better
When you order your Shinseiki Pear from Fast Growing Trees, you get a well-rooted, better-branched variety that can't be found at big-box nurseries or local growers.

These well-branched trees will sell out, so we recommend that you order yours today. Get your tree today, and enjoy home-grown pears sooner!
Shinseiki Asian Pear Tree Pollination
Shinseiki Asian Pear Trees are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Shinseiki Asian Pear Tree will drastically increase the size of your crop.
Planting & Care
1. Planting: Dig a hole three times the size and just as deep as the root ball. You want to be careful that the tree does not settle too low in the soil. After the hole is dug, carefully loosen and unwind any roots as necessary. Fill in the hole completely and gently remove air pockets that may have formed by tamping down with a spade. Water the tree thoroughly after the tree has been planted.
2. Watering: Water your pear tree as necessary giving it at least 1 or 2 inches of water once a week. When the weather gets hot and dry during the peak of summer, increase the amount of water to maintain proper hydration and moisture. Do not water the pear tree after the first frost in the fall. You should resume watering once the last frost has passed.
3. Pruning: When pruning, it’s important to trim the pear tree’s central leader to promote an upright position. If there are any competing branches present, remove them so that multiple leaders do not form. Maintain the tree’s natural shape by pruning large, lateral branches. Dead, dying or wilted branches should always be removed to help the Pear Tree focus its energy on growing healthy and producing an abundance of fruit.

- Shinseki Asian Pear Tree
- apple trees
Planted 2 trees approximately a year ago. Got 3 pears/tree. The taste is amazing!!!!! I am replacing my diseased apple trees bought elsewhere with trees from this company and am buying plum and pear trees, as well as blueberry and blackberry bushes. SOOOOO happy with the quality and rapidity with which my pears grew!
Shinseki Asian Pear Tree
So far, at the first time and I am happy with this Shinseki Asian Pear Tree, because, they sent this tree with a good ball's roots, which are developed and firmed roots very well; it is a healthy Shinseki Asian Pear tree at this point.
