Pyrus x 'Ooharabeni'

An interesting cross of Max Red Bartlett and Asian pear Okasankichi made by the Japanese National Fruit Institute. We found it at the USDA Germplasm repository in Corvallis, Oregon. The tree has a compact habit and has red leaves in spring turning green in the summer. The fruit is medium size, round and red when ripe in late August or early September. The fruit combines the flavor and texture of its European and Asian parents.

favorite of the deer

I bought this one several years ago and the deer and the pear slugs love it. The deer would stick their heads through the fence to eat the leaves and then get their heads stuck and run off with the fence leaving it crumpled out in the woods. I had to wrap the wire fence with deer net and then stake the whole thing down with 2 fence posts. A little copper spray stops the pear slugs but has to be redone a few times each year. This year we finally got 6 beautiful pears that tasted like the best of both. We are looking forward to this tree getting bigger and more productive.
