Pear Asian 20th Century

Description
Productive and ornamental, 20th Century Asian Pear Tree bears heavy yields of uniform, very juicy, sweet fruits that ripen from mid-August to October. Their rich flavor and firm texture make them a perfect choice for canning and freezing. A vigorous and high-yielding variety, it bears a smaller initial harvest of medium-sized fruits, and then produces more and more each year. Highly ornamental, this tree is covered with sweetly fragrant, bright white blooms in the spring. In the fall, its dark green, glossy foliage turns a brilliant orange-red. Suggested pollinators include: Chojuro, Drippin' Honey, Olympic Giant and Shinko. Zones 5-9. Gurney's Deluxe fruit trees include 2 oz. Quick-Cal Pelletized Calcium, 12 oz. bag of Fruit Tree Food Starter Formula and a premium tree guard to protect the trunk for gnawing pests, weed trimmers and mowers.
