SOIL

Prefers well drained fertile soil.

PLANTING SITE

Sunny and sheltered is best. Plant 4-5m apart from other trees.

CLIMATE

Nashis are best in areas with cool to cold Winters and mild Summers. 

WATERING

Water well during the early stages, during long dry periods and when the fruit is developing.

PESTS & DISEASES

Nashi trees are best with a preventative spray program. At a minimum a winter oil and copper application should be made, followed in Spring at bud movement and ten days later by another copper spray.

PLANTING IDEAS

Nashi trees are attractive trees with medium-large leaves, and are good for espalier training. 

FRUIT

Harvest Nashis from mid to late Summer.  Nijiseiki is better eaten fresh over it's three weeks of maturity, while Hosui stores for 2-3 months. 

POLLINATION

Nijiseiki is self fertile, while Hosui needs to be planted with Nijiseiki for cross pollination (or choose a double-grafted tree with both varieties). Nashi trees make good pollinators for pear varieties too. 

TREE SIZE

Height up to 5-6m.

RECOMMENDED PRUNING SYSTEM

Central leader. 

Cross pollination occurs between varieties on double trees.
