White flesh is mild-flavored, crisp, juicy, medium-sugar and high acid. Medium-large greenish-yellow semi-glossy fruit is roundish-oblate. This is the pear that, along with Chojuro, kicked off the Asian pear industry in Japan and became the standard to which all others are compared.
Juicy, sweet, mild flavored fruit is crisp like an apple. Keeps well. Easy to grow, heavy bearing small tree.

Also known as the 20th Century Pear is, by far, the most popular and ornamental Asian pear tree. It is easy to grow, reliable and heavy cropping and boasts one of the finest flavours of any fruit tree. The crisp white flesh is juicy, mildly aromatic and produces a beautifully delicate, subtle, refined taste which really gives your palate something to think about as you pick a part the intricate notes of intertwined flavours.
The Nijisseiki Asian Pear is an absolutely delicious variety that produces an abundance of juicy yellow fruit. The fruit grown on a Nijisseiki tree is arguably the sweetest and juiciest Asian Pear produced today. In fact, these little pears are so juicy that their flavor and texture is actually much closer to a watermelon than traditional pears!
Call to Order! Everything about this tree is great. The 20th Century Asian Pear, or Nijisseiki as it is often called, is the perfect ornamental fruit tree for your yard.
Are they apples or pears? Like apples, they ripen on the tree and have a crisp, firm texture, but they have juicy, white flesh with the flavor and fragrance of pears. They have also been called sand pears, Oriental or Chinese pears, sha li Chinese for sand pearand nashi Japanese for pear.
Add To My Wish List. The most popular Asian pear by far, and among the most ornamental too; consistently produces loads of delicious oblong to rounded yellow-green fruit in summer, flowers render the tree a white-out in spring, orange-red fall color. It produces yellow round pears which are botanically known as 'pomes' with hints of red and white flesh which are usually ready for picking in late summer.
