Hosui is an early-season Asian pear, sometimes considered to have the best flavor of any Asian pear variety.
The flesh is very juicy, crisp, and very sweet.
Hosui will not store as well as other Asian pear varieties, perhaps 1-2 months in the fridge - but this is a small price to pay for such excellent flavor.
Hosui grows with a spreading habit, becoming semi-weeping as it gets older.
Advice on fruit tree pollination.
Hosui is a relatively new variety, and was introduced in the 1970s by the National Horticulture Research Station, Tsukuba, Japan.
