Juicy Jewel® Asian Pear has crisp, yet juicy apple-like texture, strong disease resistance, and an early harvest date in mid-August that will make it a popular choice for cool-climate growers. Juicy Jewel® produces attractive oval-to-elliptical-shaped fruit with yellow-green skin and the occasional orange-pink blush. Taste-wise, Juicy Jewel® fruit is sweet with mild tropical overtones. It can be picked ripe for immediate consumption and may be stored for two to three months when refrigerated. The tree should be planted in combination with another pear variety to ensure cross pollination and optimum fruit production.
