Asian pear trees are unique in their taste and texture from European pear trees. Not only are they crisp and firm but they are also usually a brownish-yellow color and round. Furthermore, these pears spread in America in the 1820’s due to Chinese and Japanese immigrants. In fact Japan grew these delicious pears for over 3,000 years. And currently, many people are deciding to grow and buy asian pear trees. When you buy asian pear trees, you don’t need a cross pollinator since they are self-fertile. However it always helps to buy at least two varieties!
