Looking to add an ornamental fruit tree to your garden? Consider the 20th Century Asian Pear, also known as Nijisseiki. This tree has everything you could want - easy growth, delicious fruit, and year-round beauty.
With its unique combination of pear and apple, Asian pears are a delight for the senses. The 20th Century variety smells like a pear, but has a crisp, firm, and round exterior like an apple. The fruit is sweeter and juicier than a regular pear, making it a real treat for your taste buds.
One of the great things about the 20th Century Asian Pear is that it requires very little maintenance. With just a bit of pruning, you'll enjoy a bountiful harvest of ripe, fresh fruit every year. And the best part? The harvest gets bigger and bigger over time. In fact, you can expect to see double or even triple the fruit yield each year!
The Nijisseiki is also self-fertile, meaning you don't need another pear tree for cross-pollination. But if you do have other pear trees in your garden, planting the 20th Century Asian Pear alongside them will lead to an even bigger harvest.
