Kikusui Pear Tree

Pyrus pyrifolia 'Kikusui'

The Kikisui Asian Pear Tree is a great pear to grow at home, because these delicious pears are not known to ship well - they are not often found in stores. The best way to enjoy these crisp and sweet pears is when you grew them yourself. It's a truly amazing treat!

The Kikusui Asian pear, also known as the floating chrysanthemum asian pear, is known for its sweet-tart flavor and the flat, chubby fruits. The flesh is creamy white, sweet with just a touch of tartness, and quite firm. The skin is very delicate and bruises easily so this pear doesn’t have a good reputation shipping, which is why you'll rarely see this jewel in the grocery stores.

The Kikusui pear tree was brought to the United States during the California Gold Rush in the 1850s. This cute little fruit has a beautiful name that means “Chrysanthemum Floating in Water.” The floating chrysanthemum is also the crest of the Japanese royal family.
