Kumoi is a popular Asian pear, noted for the very attractive golden russet fruits.

The bright white flesh is firm and crisp, with a very sweet flavour.

History

Kumoi is reasonably self-fertile. It flowers relatively early in the pear blossom season, and can also be pollinated by some of the earlier-flowering European pears, such as Louise Bonne.

As with all Asian pears, Kumoi does best if planted in full sun. Be sure to thin the fruitlets in June, this will ensure you get larger pears, and will also avoid over-straining the branches.
