The Asian pear tree (Nashi), originated in China and Japan, where it is commonly grown. In Europe, in Poland in particular, it remains almost unknown, despite the fact that its cultivation has been proven to be possible there. The aim of the experiment – carried out between 2008 and 2015 at the Fruit Experimental Station Samotwór, next to Wrocław – was to evaluate the growth intensity and yielding of several Asian pear tree cultivars: ‘Kosui’, ‘Shinseiki’, ‘Nijisseiki’, ‘Chojuro’, ‘Hosui’, and…

Fruit Quality and Storability of Some Asian Pear Cultivars Collected in the Gene Bank of the Research Institute of Horticulture, Central Poland

All of the evaluated cultivars can be stored for 10 weeks at 0 °C in regular atmosphere without major negative impact on their quality characteristics and showed a slight (sometimes significant) decrease in FF after storage and a slight or no changes in TSS and TA.

Evaluation of certain pomological and phenological traits of selected asian pear varieties growing in Middle European conditions

Of the assessed late-maturing varieties, the promising ones were ‘Ya Li’ and ‘Mut Chen’, especially due to their relatively high storability under cold storage.



Asian Pear: A Potential Alternative Fruit Crop for Growers in the Mid-Atlantic Region

. Production of european pears ( Pyrus communis L.) in the eastern United States is limited by a number of physiological and pathological problems. In an attempt to expand sustainable pear production

Current breeding objectives at NIFTS mainly combine superior fruit quality with traits related to labor and cost reduction, multiple disease resistance, or self-compatibility, and marker-assisted selection for each trait are currently in progress.

Evaluation of three Asian pear cultivars for cultivation in commercial orchards

From 1999 to 2003, a trial was conducted of three Japanese cultivars of Asian pear (Pyrus serotina Rehder) in terms of growth, yield and fruit quality. The cultivars evaluated were 'Shinseiki',

Field Performance of Asian Pear Cultivars in the Hot, Humid Summer Conditions of the Mid-Atlantic Region of the United States

There appears to be a good potential for locally-produced Asian pear fruit and with the correct cultivar selection for fire blight management, local growers should be able to produce this alternative crop sustainably and market their fruit profitably.

The quality of japanese pear fruits harvested in two differents regions of Santa Catarina State, Brazil

The deficiency in the quantity and quality of the cold during vernalization trigged the flowering without the presence of leaves up to "J" stage in the cv.

Postharvest fruit physicochemical changes and properties of Asian (Pyrus serotina Rehd.) and European (Pyrus communis L.) pear cultivars.

Postharvest changes in the physicochemical properties of two commercial Asian pears showed better storage ability and maintained their quality better than the European ‘Shahmiveh’ pear cultivar, while the European pear had higher ethylene production than the Asian pear cultivars.

Chemical thinning of Asian and European pear with ethephon and NAA

Abstract In the 1989/90 season 6‐year‐old Lincoln‐canopy trained ‘Nijisseiki’ and ‘Hosui’ Asian pear (Pyrus pyrifolia Nakai) trees were part‐tree sprayed with 400 ppm ethephon

Quality, Maturity, and Storage of Asian Pears Grown in Central Washington

To determine appropriate harvest indices and storage potential of eight Asian pear cultivars, fruit grown in the Columbia basin of central Washington were harvested weekly for 10 wk and fruit characteristics were measured.

Effects of Foliar Potassium Fertilization on Fruit Growth Rate, Potassium Accumulation, Yield, and Quality of ‘Kousui’ Japanese Pear

F foliar application of KNO3 is an efficient way to increase ‘Kousui’ japanese pear fruit yield, whereas spraying HAK is an effective way to improve the fruit quality.

Addition of Forchlorfenuron to Spray Pollination Media Increases Fruit Set in ‘Hosui’ Japanese Pear
