This variety is self-fertile but will yield better with bigger fruits if it cross pollinates with another variety such Williams Pear.

Nashi Pear - Nijisseiki (Grafted) 3/10

Pat1's Edible Fruits
Update: 2001 days 5hrs

Comments: - My tree is on a dwarfing rootstock and it is rather slow growing.  I still prefer the vigourous rootstocks and control the tree size by various training methods.  I am very impatient. This tree has been in the ground for about 5 years now and is still small and not productive.  I do see some flowers in Spring but so far only had 1 fruit!  Very disappointed considering how well the stone fruits are doing.

Not as prolific as the dwarf apple but green leaves filling out the tree on 20 Nov 2012
NickL1 says... [2209 days 11hrs ago]
Steady growth. Leaves filled out the branches. Applied blood and bones on dripping line on 1.3.13.

Taking off like the apple tree. Again, hoping for fruits in summer of 2014.

Like the apple tree, the nishi lost all its leaves in winter and is only starting to grow back now. Skinny like the apple tree tree. Am hoping it will grow more branches and leaves, maybe even a fruit or two :)

This tree is truly established. Have grown much taller with more branches and leaves. Also started flowering. Hope to eat the first fruit from this tree this year. Have consistently fertilised during winter and spring.
