Olympic Giant Asian Pear Tree

Huge Fruits, Great Quality!

A no-spray pear! Sweet and crisp, Olympic Giant pears are extra large—often weighing a pound or more! Extra juicy, too. Hold their flavor for up to 6 months in storage. Super-hardy trees begin to bear in their third year. Ripens mid to late Oct.

Why buy a Deluxe package - Deluxe fruit trees include 2 oz. of Fruit-Boost™ Pelletized Calcium to enhance fruit quality, 12 oz. bag of Fruit Tree Food Starter Formula, easy-to-use tree ties (see video below), a premium tree guard to protect the trunk from gnawing pests, mowers and weed trimmers, and a copy of Backyard Horticulture for Fun and Profit—How to Make $10,000 in Your Spare Time.

NOTE: We are unable to ship our trees to PO Boxes at this time.
