Chojuro Asian Pear – Butterscotch Flavor!
This beautiful golden pear is consistently ranked as one of the best flavored Asian pears. Chojuro has the crisp texture of a good apple, and a marvelous pear flavor sometimes described as like butterscotch. They keep well in storage for a very long time (reportedly up to six months). Chojuro is semi-self-fertile, but as with all Asian pears, yield is increased if another variety is planted nearby. Fruit ripens in mid August to September. Pollinate with HOSUI, KOREAN GIANT, SHINKO, SHINSEIKI, or 20TH CENTURY. 450-550 chill hours. Zones 5-9A.
