Ooharabeni Asian Pear
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. Resistant to scab.
