Our Secrets of Growing and Storing
After planting seedlings and nurturing young Asian Pear trees, biodegradable bands are used to pull the tender branches from a young tree away from its trunk. This trains the branches to grow sideways instead of upwards, which is their natural tendency.
An Asian Pear team member slides the rubber band onto a slim, young, green branch and then carefully pulls the branch sideways and hooks the other end of the rubber band to either a mature tree trunk or limb.
Training the branches to grow sideways allows more sunshine to kiss the pears, which makes for a sweeter Subarashii Kudamono Asian Pear. It also organizes the branches into a trellis style format, creating a well-balanced and healthy tree that will support many delicious Asian Gourmet Pears in the seasons ahead.
Additionally, strips of red and silver Mylar are tied into each Asian Pear tree in the late summer to make the orchard look as if it is on fire. This practice of growing gourmet pears is not a trick of the eyes or a clever marketing ploy. This is actually a tactic to deter birds from harming the ripening fruit.
Once Asian Pears are picked, shipped, and arrive at your door, they can be stored at room temperature for up to one week. Store them in a bowl or put them directly on your countertop.
Asian Pears can be stored for for several in your refrigerator. Placing them in a fruit drawer or on a refrigerator shelf can prevent crushing or bruising.
