Shin Li Asian Pear is a new Japanese/Chinese naturally pollinated cross, developed in the United States and patented by UC Davis. "Shin" in Japanese means new, and "Li" in Chinese means pear. Medium to large fruit. Firm, coarse, white crisp juicy flesh and a sweet, and a flavor of cinnamon spice. The skin is light to yellowish-green with large lenticels. Storage life is 3 months.
We usually start picking Shin Li the first week of October until the end of the month. We leave some on the trees into the winter to freeze to make our Asian Pear Ice Wine.
During harvest season, we are very busy keeping up with local orders. We do pick some Shin Li for storage in our refrigerated cooler. We ship Shinko special order on request. Please contact during October and November for shipping this variety.
