Pyrus pyrifolia 'Korean Giant'

Also called Dan Bae or Olympic, Korean Giant is a vigorous, winter-hardy tree that produces at a young age and bears a heavy crop of large, round, olive-green fruit that can weigh up to a pound each! The fruit can be kept in cold storage until March. This highly touted pear blooms early in the season and ripens in mid-October. It is very crisp and juicy with a high sugar content.

Does well in most of the nation but can ripen too late in the coolest maritime summer climates. Considered reliably fireblight resistant!

Ask a Question
  • Will shinseiki pollinate Korean giant Asian pear tree?

    Yes, they cross polliante fine.

  • can your korean giant asian pear be used as a pollinizer for shinko asian pear

    Yes! You bet!

  • Love this tree! ;Utah SLC high ph clay zone 6b) Is the rootstock on this tree the same as you have used in years past?

    Yes, it is still on an Old Homestead x Farmingdale rootstock.

  • Exactly which Asian pear tree does this need to pollinate??? It keeps on changing on me when I double and triple check

    Any other Asian Pear will cross pollinate fine. There are too many options for the suggestion app to display so they change.

  • How old or how large is the Korean Giant tree to be purchased or how many years after grafting? $59.00 is a good price for a vigorous well developed tree but for a very young one - not so much.

    This is a 3-year old tree. Our experience is a large/older tree does not ship as well and is prone to die more often during transplant.

  • Hi, can you tell me how long it take for semi-dwarf 4'-5' korean giant asian pear tree to bear fruit Thanks

    Usually 2-3 years if it establishes well.

Miracle of Life.

I ordered my 2nd Asian Pear tree to pollinate my 1st Asian Pear tree.
The 2nd tree was put in a bucket of water for 2 weeks…
that tree has been sprouting leaves after 3 days in water.
Finally dug the 2nd hole, 2 feet from the 1st (Rain Tree’s
suggestion since space is an issue)_ it’s going to be interesting, these trees will lock together like a hedge sporting Pears.
Now, if only Hawaii’s Agriculture Dept would allow my Parfianka Pomegranate to be shipped, that would complete the “miracle of life”.

So far so good

So far so good and we’re starting to get some leaves sprouts and couldn’t wait till it gets mature. The tree was in good condition and shipping was great. I will order more fruit trees in the future. Thank you Raintree.
