The best Asian Pears

Wait… Does. Drippin Honey require a pollinator? If so, it’s a no-go.

In that case, you have a choice between Hosui and Shinseiki.

Hosui it is.

Ouch. That hurts. Must be very hard to leave trees and plants you worked so hard to nurture. I hope the new owners appreciated them.

This thread is fairly extensive, and a lot of varieties discussed. I have looked, and not found any info on one I just put in the ground - Tawara. My main goal was to use it as a pollinator for my Summercrisp, but have not found any info on it as for taste, production, hardiness etc. It was recommended as a hardy AP for my zone (4b). Does anyone here have experience with it - any thoughts? Thanks!

I have one. A later ripening large pear. It’s OK, but on it’s way out here. Not sure how hardy it is, but I would imagine no more than any other asian pear. I would graft better varieties to it.
