Chojuro Asian Pear Tree

Description
Our researchers consistently rank Chojuro as the richest-flavored Asian pear. Beautiful, golden fruit has a butterscotch-like flavor when tree-ripened. The medium to large fruit ripens in mid September. Very productive; thin to increase fruit size.

Why buy a Deluxe package - Deluxe fruit trees include 2 oz. Quik-Cal Pelletized Calcium to enhance fruit quality, 12 oz. bag of Fruit Tree Food Starter Formula, easy-to-use tree ties, a premium tree guard to protect the trunk from gnawing pests, mowers and weed trimmers, and a copy of Backyard Horticulture for Fun and Profit—How to Make $10,000 in Your Spare Time.

NOTE: We are unable to ship our trees to PO Boxes at this time.
