Introduction of the varieties grown
You’ll enjoy the classy texture!
Harvest time: early August to mid-August
It is a classic variety of pear that comes into season earlier than any other in Hatsuseien.
It is the most widely harvested pear in Japan, accounting for 40% of all Japanese pears.
It was bred by crossing “Kikusui” with “Wasekozo” and was registered in 1959.
It is characterized by its crisp, elegant texture and strong sweetness.
Pears grown in Kamagaya, Chiba, the birthplace of pears, have a rich and sweet taste that is different from the rest.
It’s a bit disappointing that the pears have a short shelf life due to their elegant texture.
Please eat them within a week after they arrive.
Plenty of fruit juice!
Harvest time: mid-August to mid-September
This is another classic pear variety. Along with Kosui, it is a popular variety in Japan.
Kosui, Shinsui and Hosui are also called the “three waters” of pears.
The size of the pears is slightly larger than Kosui. The surface of the pears has a slightly coarser texture than that of the Kosui pears.
It was registered in 1972, and the parents are “Kosui” and “Ishii Saisei” and “Nijusei”.
With an abundance of moisture, strong sweetness and gentle acidity, the Toyosui is perfect for summer pear picking!
At the right time of year, it can be harvested in the late summer heat after the Bon festival.
When you eat them freshly picked in the heat, they have a nice tartness to them that’s just right!
It lasts longer than kosui, more than a week.
Just be sure to eat it sooner rather than later if you want to experience the true flavor!
This is the breed that started the pear picking process at Hatsuneishien!
Customers who came to pick pears said they were delicious! Every year, we receive many comments from our clients.
Very rare and exclusive pears.
Harvest time: early September.
Unlike Kosui and Hosui, this is a very rare species.
As its name suggests, Kaori-nashi is a green pear with a stronger aroma than other varieties. They have a very elegant taste.
They are large, with large pears weighing more than 1 kg.
They are very rare and hard to find in the market, so they are popular as high quality pears. It is hard to find in mass merchandisers.
In recent years, more and more people have come to the park just for this variety.
It was created in 1953 as a crossbreed between Shinko x Kosui.
Why is such a delicious variety so hard to find?
That’s because they don’t last very long, in addition to falling off the tree when they get big.
Nevertheless, some farms continue to produce it because of its good taste.
Hatsumeien is one of those few farms.
Big and sweet pears!
Harvest time: early September to early October.
It’s a large variety that is not unusual for it to exceed 1 kilo.
The average size is very large, ranging from 500 to 600 grams. It’s about the size of a softball.
Its large size and good appearance make it an ideal gift.
It is the last variety to come into season at Hatsukyoen and can also be enjoyed during pear picking.
The Niitaka has a relatively long harvest period.
Its juicy, low acidity gives it a strong sweet taste.
The flesh is soft and tender, and you can enjoy the juicy texture the moment you bite into it.
The flesh of the fruit is white and beautiful.
Find your favorite pear!
Pears are a fruit that all varieties of pears end up being harvested very quickly.
