Also known as clumsy pear or pear mushroom, is referred to as “old lady pear” or “pockmarked pear” in the Shandong region. Because its flesh is relatively soft, it is edible for elderly women, hence the name “old lady pear”. Taipo pear is a variety that has undergone only simple artificial domestication, so its characteristics are closer to wild pears. The famous Shandong Laiyang pear is further domesticated from Taipo pear. Taipo pears are relatively small, with green, crispy skin covered with brown spots. Immature pears are sour and not tasty, but ripe pears develop a reddish blush on the sunny side. The flesh is slightly softer than toothpaste in hardness. Taipo pears have a soft, sweet taste without being cloying.
Bare root shipping. Some leaves and branches will be trimmed off before shipping.
