Shinko Asian Pear is a Japanese Pear. "Shinko" in Japanese means shiny new. Medium to large fruit with excellent quality, white-yellow flesh, and a sweet juicy, citrus-like flavor. Skin is brown to golden-brown russet. Storage life is 3 to 4 months.
We usually start picking Shinko 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 Shinko for storage in our refrigerated cooler. We ship Shinko special order on request. Please contact during October and November for shipping this variety.
