Just probably because of a dip in temperatures. They may think that it's Fall again. If you over watered them, the leaves will have black spots (halves or whole leaves) in them, just like over fertilizing.

Which variety do you have? Chojuro is the hardiest and most productive, though not as tasty as the runner up. Followed closely by Nijissheki (Twentieth Century Pear).

There hasnt been a drastic change in the tempatures, we have been in the high 80's during the day and low 70's at night. Im not sure what kind of Orient Pear it is it didnt specify on the tag.

I think I might have Over watered it. I checked the soil and its still moist I think I ill wait to water it till its alittle more dry under the mulch. But I am still concerned because the yellow leaves are falling and it looks like maybe a few more leaves turned yellow. but I wont know for sure until tonight when I check it.

P. Pyrifolia is the rootstock. The nursery that sold this pear tree is not very helpful. "Nashi" simply means "Asian Pear". It could be anything - from Japanese, to Chinese, to Korean. Most Japanese and Korean Pears are apple shaped, hence, the vernacular name "apple pear". To most Asian Pear growers, this name is taboo. IF you go to an Asian Pear Tree dealer and ask for an apple pear tree, you might get an answer of, "I don't know that one", or "What is that?", etc.

Chinese Pear is usually standard pear shaped (Ya-Li) or avocado shaped (Tsu-Li). Like all Asian pears, these stay crisp even when fully ripe.

Post a picture of the ripe fruits when you get them. That will give us a clue of what it is.

BTW, be sure to have another pear within close proximity of your tree, for pollination. Bartlett Pear is an an excellent pollinator for Chojuro or Twentieth Century, as is another Twentieth Century. Hosui blooms a little later, and Seigyoku even much later. Seigyoku is very tasty. It can have a shape like the Delicious Apple, where the fruits can form lobes at the bottom. The taste is very sweet with some tang to it.

I guess we wont know until few years from now when it fruits! HA! I bought another pear tree A Kieffer pear tree but Im not sure how close to plant it to the Asian pear I cant plant it next to it because my "Mollies Delicious Apple" Is there. I was think of planting it in front but to the right of it. Or on another side of the yard But I dont know what would work best to pollinate

Depending on the Asian Pear variety, I don't know that the Keiffer Pear tree will be much help, since the Kieffer is a late blooming tree. It would probably be helpful for Seigyoku because it's a late blooming variety also. But if you Asian pear is the more popular variety, you'll need to have an early or regular blooming variety. The trees do not have to be right next to each other, though it would be best if they were. In close proximity would work, just as it would if you had a neighbor that had a Bartlett Pear next door.

Kieffer is a cross between a European and Asian Pear, reportedly a Chinese pear variety. Judging from it's shape, most probably it's from Ya-Li.

Can anyone tell me the best pollinator for seigyoku trees? I have 2 of them planted, but didn't know if I need to cross pollinate with another variety or if they will feed each other? Thanks!
