Nijisseiki Asian Pear Tree - Sweetest Asian Pear of all! (2 years old and 3-4 feet tall.)
New Century (Also known as Nijisseiki) Asian Pear is an absolutely delicious variety that produces an abundance of juicy yellow fruit. The fruit grown on a New Century 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! Not only is New Century cold hardy down to -20°, it also lives quite comfortably in warm southern states. This makes New Century not just our most adaptable Asian Pear tree, it’s our most adaptable fruit tree!
