Chojuro Nashi

Asian Pear


Fruit ripening time: February - March


A mildly sweet flavour that is distinctive and aromatic, considered the richest flavoured Nashi.


Fruit is medium to large in size and round. The skin is brown and russetted. The flesh crisp, white and firm, more like an apple. Chojuro has the characteristic coarse flesh, which can be described as gritty.


Trees are vigorous and will produce well once they reach fruit bearing age. Requires moderate chill hours.


Uses: Fresh eating. Great for preserves. Will store very well in the refrigerator.


Pollination Partner: Shinsui, 20th Century Nashi, Williams, Ya Li


Tree Size: Approximately 5 m tall and 4 m wide


Tree Care:

For best results plant in full sun in fertile, free draining soil.

Will adapt well to most soils, but heavy, moist soils are preferred to light, shallow soils.


Established trees can withstand wet conditions but will not tolerate waterlogging. Prefers neutral to slightly acidic soils and does not like high pH soils.


If the soil is free draining, dig a hole twice the size of the root ball, plant the tree so the top of the root ball is level with the soil line and back fill with a soil and compost mixture. If the soil is not free draining, plant the tree in a raised mound of soil and compost mix, to prevent water logging.


Water in well at planting, and water regularly as the tree establishes its roots, especially in dry spells.


Young trees will benefit from being mulched. Apply mulch in a ring around the tree base, keeping clear of the trunk.
