Pear Trees - ShinseikiPyrus pyrifolia
USDA Hardiness Zones: 5-9
The Shinseiki Asian pear is round, medium to large, yellow smooth-skinned fruit with little or no russet. Crisp, creamy white flesh; mild, sweet with a hint of spice. The Shinseiki pears taste best when tree ripened. Hangs on the tree in good condition for 4-6 weeks so often requires multiple harvests during the season. The Shinseiki is an heirloom variety that was developed from two of the best Asian pears of our time in the 1940's. It has moderate fireblight resistance. The Shinseiki Oriental Pear is of the deciduous variety that blooms in spring and ripens in mid-September. Covered with early-mid spring white blossoms that bear uniform fruit, this Asian pear prefers to have a strong central leader and tends to grow into a vertical oval if pruned properly. It will send high limbs vertically to create a rounded evergreen shape if left un-pruned. The average size of the mature tree is 10-15 feet high and 10-15 feet wide. The Shinseiki requires full sun and only occasional watering once established. Like most Asian pears, Shinseiki is partially self-fertile, but better crops will be obtained when a pollenizer is present.

How to Plant
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.
Arrived on time with packaging completely undamaged, but top half of tree was dead and almost broken off. Gauges in cambium all over, and entire thing is expected to die shortly. Will definitely not be ordering again.
Great trees! Great service, will be back!
