I love these pears when I buy them in the supermarket. I have grown peaches for years but have never grown pears. I also needed this to pollenate a bartlett pear tree.

Very healthy, second year flowers!
This is my first time growing this type of pear but this is it's second year and it's doing great! Already producing fruit though I may pluck it off so I don't stress such a young tree. Very excited to try this one!

Second year growing well
Replacement for older one lost to fire blight since the rum flavored fruit was excellent. The replacement is growing well after an attsck by deer and adding cage to stop nibbling.

Asian pear
I would recommend it . It was off to slow start but now it's growing..When it gets a good root system going it should be a great producer but it needs time and little sun would do it good .We have had a lot of rain so nothing grew fast but now everything is benefiting .So I say the tree is doing great and if you like Asian pears it's well worth it

Asian Pear trees
Although I have only had this Asian Pear tree for one year now, it can be said that it has a prolific growth rate and the leaves are of good quality, color and texture. At this rate I am sure to have some nice pears within 2 to 3 years.

Lost to fire blight
Don't let this review scare you away, My tree grew extremely well. I have no doubt I'd be looking at strong second year growth if I had a little more attentive neighbor. If you think you might have fire blight in your area I would strongly recommend you select a different tree.

Bought and planted a year ago. Tree did well, responded well to cutting for a backyard orchard (controlling size by pruning not root stock). Second year I saw indication of fire blight, cut off infected branch and cleaned area. Two week later it was apparent it was too late to save tree. Infection had shown up in lowest branches and had burned though their length. Will try again to get the infected material off, but it looks like it is too late for the tree. Appears a neighborhood tree has a strain of it, I spoke to the neighbor who had a plant it and forget it attitude, no pruning, no sprays, just creating a reservoir for infection to spread. So it seems only a matter of time before I lose the Bartlett I also planted.
