Description and varieties of Chinese pear

Asian, Japanese, Taiwanese, sand, neshi - as soon as they call a Chinese pear! This foreign fruit appeared on the Russian market relatively recently, but has already managed to gain popularity due to its pleasant and unusual taste.... In addition, the Chinese pear is easy enough to grow, and its fruits have a lot of useful properties.


The modern Chinese pear originates from the Yamanashi pear. The hard and tart fruit was sour and tasteless and was not in great demand. But thanks to the efforts of Chinese breeders, a new species was developed, devoid of excessive astringency, but at the same time retaining the best taste characteristics.

What does a Chinese pear look like?

The fruits of the Chinese pear are round, dense. The color depends on the variety - pears can be either light yellow or even pale greenish, or bronze. The rind is covered with brownish specks, similar to grains of sand (which is why the pear is called sand). The pulp is white, juicy, but firm and crunchy.

How to choose a ripe fruit?

For the Chinese pear, the selection criteria are the same as for other pear varieties: taste, density, rind. It is better to choose in the market and not in the off-season, since there is an opportunity to taste the fruit in the market before buying. The ripe fruit tastes slightly sour, the pulp is free of lumps, very juicy... The fruit should be firm, but by no means soft. Also, it should not deform under the fingers. A ripe Chinese pear has a smooth peel with specks, but at the same time without dark spots, and even more so without traces of mold.

Unripe fruits often arrive on store shelves, and in order for the pear to "ripen", it is required to hold it at room temperature. An unripe Chinese pear can also be placed in a paper bag with an apple or banana - as practice shows, "ripens faster together." It should be remembered that it is better to store ripe fruits in the refrigerator, since they will quickly deteriorate in the heat, and in low temperatures, the shelf life increases from one to three weeks.

It is strictly forbidden to eat unripe fruit, as it can have a bad effect on the body.

Features of planting and growing Duchess pears

It is recommended to plant pear seedlings in early spring, before the buds have blossomed. In this case, you need to take into account the following nuances for planting and care.

Requirements for soil and place of growth

The best place for a pear is a slightly elevated area well warmed by the sun, where the accumulation of moist air masses is excluded. There are no special requirements for the soil, but the yield of the tree depends on its fertility, therefore, the preparation of the planting holes should be given attention in advance. They are dug out in the fall, or at least 3-4 weeks before planting. The contents (excavated earth) are mixed with 3 buckets of humus, 2 liters of ash, a glass of superphosphate, and the pit is filled with the resulting mixture by a third.

Important! You should immediately think about pollinators for pears and, if necessary, plant them nearby. Among pears, varieties are suitable for her: Favorite Clappa, Forest Beauty or any apple tree with the same flowering period.

Watering mode

The root system of a pear develops for a long time, so young seedlings need frequent watering. Adult trees are watered as needed and planned 3 times a season:

  • before flowering
  • during the ovary period
  • after harvest.

Each tree requires 2-3 buckets of water. In dry weather, sprinkling can be done in the evenings - watering directly from a hose over the leaves. To make the moisture evaporate more slowly, the trunk circle is mulched.

Each tree requires 2-3 buckets of water It is recommended to plant pear seedlings in early spring. Pear planting scheme


For regular fruiting, the pear is fed 2-3 times a year. At the beginning of the season (end of May - June), liquid humus (1: 6) or droppings (1:12) are introduced into the root zone at the rate of 10 liters per tree. A month later - potassium humate (150 g / 10 l of water). At the end of summer, it is necessary to add 150 g of superphosphate or humus, sprinkling it under the tree.

For the prevention of scab, the pear should be sprayed with Bordeaux liquid in early spring and at the end of flowering.

Pear tree pruning and shaping

Pear pruning is done in the spring. In the first 5 years, the formation of the crown is carried out. The next year after planting, the central and all lateral shoots are shortened by a quarter, next year last year's shoots are 15-20 cm, and new branches are 5-8 cm. Sanitary and thinning pruning is done for fruit trees in spring and, if necessary, in autumn. Anti-aging pruning is done every 5-7 years.

Wintering features

It is believed that in temperate climates pears can winter without shelter, but since the weather is changeable, it is better to cover the trunk circle with mulch: peat, sawdust or dry humus. For late winter varieties, such a shelter will be quite enough. If Angoulême grows in your garden, or a summer variety with low winter hardiness, then the shelter should be solid. In addition to a layer of mulch of 30 cm, it is necessary to wrap the bole with warm breathable material to the base of the lower branches.
