Ya Li Nashi

Asian Pear


Fruit ripening time: March - April


An excellent nashi, which is very juicy with a mildly sweet flavour and mild acid.


Fruit are medium in size and have a more pear-like shape than other Nashi varieties. The skin is an attractive light yellow-green and shiny. The flesh is white and is softer than other Nashis but is still crisp and has a fine texture.


Trees are vigorous and spreading. Will produce well once they reach fruit bearing age. Requires low chill hours.


Uses: Good fresh eating. Great for preserves, can be used in salads, baking, and juicing. Will store moderately well in the refrigerator.


Pollination Partner: 20th Century Nashi, Chojuro, Shinsui, Williams


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.
