Help me Identify this Nashi

The nursery labelled it as Hosui, I am curious what it actually is and would like to hear some opinions. This is Germany so I am doubtful that it is Korean Giant. The Fruits are unusually large this year because of frequent rains.

Hosui and Korean Giant are both round, russeted Asian pears. The pear in your pic are NOT Hosui or KG.

It looks like a Euro pear or maybe a hybrid.


@mamuang i agree ya li and other interspecifis have a similar shape. That pear leaves do not appear to be ya li either @DroppingFruit .Ya Li aka yali pear . I do think its likely a bretschneideri Pyrus bretschneideri an interspecific hybrid of Pyrus pyrifolia x Pyrus ussuriensis - fireblight resistant


Very similar to Ya Li, but some differences still. definitely on the right track, thanks.

sorry I should have double checked, memory vs reality of KG did not coincide. Definitely an Asian pear.

This is my KG.
