Cuttings will not have roots, no leaves, for grafting purposes
Often called apple pears, Asian pears have characteristics of both fruits. Most Asian pears have a round shape, with the crisp, firm, texture of apples. However, inside they have a juicy white flesh and flavor reminiscent of pears. The fruits can have yellow to carmel colored, smooth or rough skin and a flavor with hints of cinnamon, apricot, and butterscotch, depending on the variety. There are hundreds of varieties in China, Korea, and Japan where these trees are native, and now they are becoming more readily available to American gardeners, too. The beauty of Asian pears is they grow in USDA zones 5 to 9 and many varieties only grow 8-to 15-feet tall, making them perfect for a small yard. They are partially self-fertile so you can get away with just growing one tree, although two trees will produce more fruit. Some varieties have excellent resistance to common pear diseases, such as fire blight and bacterial canker. So consider a new fruit tree for your yard next spring. Do some taste testing of different varieties at your local market to decide which has the best flavor and grow a few Asian pears as a new treat.
