Pyrus pyrifolia 'Chojuro'

We love the rich, distinctive, aromatic flavor of this prolific traditional Japanese favorite. Sometimes called 'Old World', the fruit is of good size and has vivid orange, russetted skin. Its strong, rummy overtones make this the strongest-flavored Asian pear we sell.

Fruit ripens in mid September and keeps until March. Shows fireblight resistance in many regions.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Ask a Question
  • What kind of pear tree can the CHOJURO ASIAN PEAR pollinate with?

    Any other Asian pear

  • Your data on mature tree size is confusing. Is the semi dwarf 5'-6' or 15'

    The height of the tree when shipped is 4'-5' tall and it will grow to around 15' tall at maturity.

  • Is this statement below true? Can I expect a small crop from a single tree? As a single owner, a small crop would be acceptable. Most varieties of Asian pear are self-pollinating and produce adequate crops when planted on their own. But all benefit from cross-pollination and produce greater yields when planted with other pear trees with the same bloom time.

    No, not entirely. Most varieties of Asian pears are not self-pollinating in most areas. Only Shinseiki and Nijisseiki are reliably self-fruitful in most regions. Others can be self-pollinating in some regions, but not enough to be considered reliable for most of the United States.

The tree is settling in well. It has 3 pairs of blossoms, and the leaves are doing nicely.

Good start

Both the Asian pears are off to a good start. Luckily for more than a week after planting, it has been raining or cloudy. Both trees are showing ~10 buds that i will have to remove to help growth.

Update 5/23/23

The Chojuro asian pear did eventually leaf out and did well last year. This year, its 2nd year in the ground, it is doing wonderfully. I am very happy with the quality, vigor, and health of this tree.
