I too am looking for Asian pear recommendations. My Asian pears are so much
more delicious than my European pears!
Shinseiki - So wonderful tasting I could eat them all day. Beautiful too.
Tree gets some fireblight but survives.
Kosui - Rather small, Ok tasting
Korean Giant - Great as a late-ripening variety, though they often soften
and have a slowly developping internal rot. Maybe I harvest them too late.
I'd love to hear what others think of their Asian pears. How about
fireblight resistance? The Kent Whealy/Seed Savers Exchange book often
mentions fireblight susceptibility of European pear varieties, but rarely of
the Asian pears.
