Shinseiki Asian Pear
Shinseiki Asian Pears (Pyrus Domestica Shinseiki) is easy to grow, a reliable cropper providing tasty eating pears and pleasing foliage and flowers in the Spring. Some trees have cropped so heavily the branches have broken.
Asian Pears combine the distinct flavour of pears with the crispiness of apples and have a distinct but very pleasing aroma.
This fruit tree is SELF FERTILE which means it will provide fruit without the need for another pollinator. In plain English, plant it where you like, it will provide fruit although close proximity to some secret Government labs may influence your results!
Provided as a bush form in a 7-15 Litre container.

The two Asian pear tree were superb specimens and they have endured rain, winds and hopefully a bit of sun now, all in a matter of weeks since their arrival. So hopefully, today being the first day of spring....we are keeping our fingers crossed that spring has finally sprung and the start of the warmer days will bring on a growth spurt!!!Kind regards A.

Do I Need To Stake My Bare Root Fruit Tree?
9 out of 10 times the answer will be no, especially if under 200cm tall. However our article on Tree Staking should help guide you.
Growing Our Trees In The UK
To date, we have checked the passports of our trees and none seem to have sneaked off for non UK holidays so all are UK grown.
Warm and wet conditions from Climate Change have increased aesthetic foliage issues such as Powdery Mildew, Shothole, Rust etc These are not terminal issues and will usually last a season. All trees are inspected before being sent out to ensure they are fundamentally healthy.
Planting In The Corner Of A Garden
Air and light is reduced in this location which could promote fungus and bacterial issues. If the corner is of the house and a fence then you also have leeching issues to contend with from cement and wood preservatives. Also when it rains, that area would experience higher water levels so we advise against it unless the plant is very hardy.
Fruit Tree Heights
Taller does not mean more value for money. A 1 year old fruit tree can easily be substantially higher than a 2 year old, this is because they are hard pruned at 1 year old to create the desired shape. Some trees have over 100cm of height removed. They can then have another pruning at 2 years old to increase fruit growing real estate. Most fruit trees will benefit from having a third to half of the seasons new growth cut back in the Autumn to prevent long whippy branches which break easily. Age and pruning completed determine real value.
