Hosui pear is a relatively (for our nursery) introduction in the early 1970's. The Hosui is golden-brown russeted skin with extremely juicy, fine grain textured flesh, rich flavor with a distinct brandy aroma. A refreshing treat in the heat of summer. Hosui is characterized by bit of a wild growth habit. Favorite in several taste tests. Fairly good keeper.

Shipping Note:  Our fruit trees and berries are delivered to you bareroot during their winter dormancy from January through May depending on USDA zone. Trees are shipped with your invoice and helpful planting directions. There is no minimum quantity required but shipping rate for an individual tree is expensive since UPS/Fed Ex charge a dimensional weight and an additional handling fee to ship a tree. You'll find it's cost effective to consider a handful of trees,vines or our helpful Tree Starter Kits.
