We have one Asian Pear from Stark Brothers. We have had it for years. We love the fruit and have only had one year that the blossoms froze. They keep well also.

want to order asian pears, bartlet pears, and apricots for zone 9B, 95046. could suggest the ones compatible for this area. Dwarf is good.?
david m on Feb 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Maybe try the Hosui Asian pear. It is self fertile. Your probable a little too warm for a Bartlett. I live in zone 5 and have a half dozen dwarf fruit trees. I like them. I don't let them get much taller than 6 feet tall. Easy to inspect and prune.
what is the size & heights of this pear tree when full grown?
Sysw C on Feb 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: As stated in the Size & Spacing section. When your Dwarf Starking® Hardy Giant™ Asian Pear tree matures, it will be approximately 8-10' tall x 6-7' wide.

Nothing can comPAIR with it
I recently moved from Illinois to Indiana, that is why I'm ordering your trees. When I lived in Illinois I ordered this tree from you and I loved it. Large fruit and a lot of it, and not much maintenance.
