Very large and roundish fruit with firm flesh, very crisp, and a juicy, sweet cane-sugar taste. Skin is an attractive golden brown. Storage life is 4 months. Some Olympic pears can weigh over 2 pounds each. They are very dense, heavy, and the crunchiest pear we grow. One of the best tasting pears and the preferred Korean Asian Pear.
Olympic (Korean Giant)
We usually start picking Olympic the last week of September through to the middle of October. Some Olympic pears can weigh over 2 pounds each.
During harvest season, we are very busy keeping up with local orders. We do pick some Olympic for storage in our refrigerated cooler. We ship Olympic special order on request. Please contact during October and November for shipping this variety.
