Hosui Asian Pear is a Japanese pear, which is large size with a crisp, juicy off-white grainy flesh. The Japanese word "hosui" means juicy, or water retention. High in fiber, vitamins K and C, copper, and potassium. This is our juiciest pear, and it is our most popular pear. Very thin (fragile) skin has an excellent golden brown russeting. Storage life is approx. 2 months.
We usually start picking this pear either the last week of August, or the first week of September. We usually finish picking the third week of September. After the third week of September, we leave some to over-ripen and pick to make our Asian Pear wine.
During harvest season, we are very busy keeping up with local orders. We do pick some Hosui for storage in our refrigerated cooler. We ship Hosui special order on request. Please contact during October and November for shipping this variety.
