YoinashiTM asian pear trees

Pyrus pyrifolia 'Yoinashi'

  • Picking season: Mid
  • Self-fertility: Not self-fertile

Yoinashi features the characteristic sugary sweetness associated with Asian pears, but with perhaps a more nuanced flavor.

Most Asian pears are either early or late season - Yoinashi is one of the few that ripens in the mid-season (i.e. mid-to-late September).

How to grow

Yoinashi is not self-fertile, so needs to be pollinated by another Asian pear - or a European pear such as Bartlett.
