Tawara Asian Pear

Discover more information on 

Tawara Asian Pear

Tawara Asian Pear has an upright oval form with glossy green foliage that looks great all season long. White flowers in spring develop into unusual dark tan to light brown crisp fruit that tastes like a cross between apple and pear. The fruit is excellent for eating or canning. Asian pear cultivars are partially self-fruitful, but better crops are set where two or more cultivars are planted together. European pears or Asian pears, such as 'Seckel', 'Bosc,' or 'Bartlett' can be used for pollination.
