Pear Shinko Fruits

Shinko Asian Pear

Pyrus pyrifolia

Shinko ripens mid season, later than the early ripening Hosui. An excellent keeper, Shinko stores well into the winter. Shinko has a crisp, refreshingly sweet flavor and is a valuable landscape addition because of its profuse white bloom, grey bark and green shiny leaves and golden fruits. Tree is more spreading, not as upright as Korean Giant or Hosui. Thin fruit for larger fruits since it produces a lot. Korean Giant is a fine choice for a pollinator. Mature height 10'-15' on OHx333 rootstock. @ 25 feet tall on standard rootstock. Zones 4-9.
