Shipova European Pear

$54.99
SKU D170
Size

x Sorbopyrus auricularis

A unique and exciting European pear and mountain ash cross from Yugoslavia, Shipova will grow to be a 15'+ tree and produces a nice crop of medium-sized, yellow, round, flavorful fruit. When fully ripe, the slick, sweet flesh has a hint of tropical guava or mango to it; as it ages the texture softens and the flavor builds to a rich marzipan! The leaves are silver grey and the tree grows to display a classical, open, pyramidal shape; it makes an elegant addition to any landscape. This tree deserves to be planted more widely!

Shipova is a hardy and scab-resistant tree, on OHxF pear rootstock, considered a late-bloomer and ripening fruit in August. Pollinizes with the late bloom groups 2 and 3 of  European pear.

USDA Zone: 3-9
