Pear Trees - Kikusui

Pyrus pyrifolia
USDA Hardiness Zones: 4-8


The Kikusui Asian pear tree is a great pear to grow at home, because these delicious pears are not often found in stores. This fruit has a cult-like following and it's easy to see why! This bumpy skinned green-to-yellow fruit looks like an apple but explodes in your mouth like the crispest, juiciest Asian pear ever. Heavy producing and maturing in early August, it is a home orchard prize! Needs another Asian pear variety nearby for best pollination and fruit set.  The Kikusui Pear is a deciduous fruit tree that blooms white flowers in late spring that is easy to grow. The average size of this plant is 12-15 feet high with a 10-12 foot spread. The Kikusui requires full sun and occasional watering once established.

How to Plant
STEP 1) First, decide on a planting location. Consider carefully what kind of sun, soil, and growing-space your tree or shrub will need.
STEP 2) Once you've located the perfect spot, the hole you are digging must be at least double the width and as deep as the root system you are planting.
STEP 3) Remove the plant from the pot and place the root ball in the hole. The top of the root system should be level with the ground. Before placing the tree or shrub in the hole, use your hands to gently break up the root system.
STEP 4) Once the plant is in place, backfill the hole with native soil and any leftover potting material.
STEP 5) Pack down the soil to eliminate any air pockets.
STEP 6) When finished, water thoroughly.
Care Guide

In order to thrive, fruiting pears need sun and water. For the best results, plant in well-drained soil. Prune pears in late winter. In particular, prune in the middle of the tree to make room for air and light circulation.
