Pollination guide for Shinseiki

Shinseiki is in flowering group 3. Shinseiki is self-sterile and needs to be pollinated by another tree of a different variety nearby. Since it flowers in the middle of the blossom season it can be pollinated by most other asian pear trees.

Important: advice about pollination

How to grow Shinseiki asian pear trees

Shinseiki is not self-fertile, so will need another Asian pear such as Kumoi for pollination. Most European pears which flower in the middle of the pear blossom season will also be suitable pollinators, including Conference and Williams.

As with all Asian pears, Shinseiki does best if planted in full sun.

Once the tree starts bearing, thin the fruitlets in June, allowing one fruitlet per cluster. If you do not thin, you will end up with lots of small flavour-less fruits.
