We've had our oldest tree now 4 years and it produced well this year for the 1st time. Unlike our other Asian pear this one seems to be slightly more columnar in shape. The fruit have a terrific taste, nicely sweet and firm, and the size is larger than any you'll find in stores; ours averaged 1.5 lbs. I'm glad I have three, two came a few years later. Thinning fruit would be wise, especially on younger trees and fruit that develops on branch tip. Imagine the density of a standard Asian pear but the size of a grapefruit.
