Sorry we have not produced any trees of this variety this season.


    As the name suggests, Korean Giant is one of the largest Asian pear varieties.

    The fruits are the size of small melons, with a golden green russeted skin.  The flesh is crisp and juicy, with the sugary sweetness which is characteristic of Asian pears.

    Korean Giant ripens late in the season, and the fruits retain their crisp flesh and sweet flavor in storage.
