Hello my names is jesse and I Have a small plant nursery in florida. I grow vegetables, palms fruit trees, and a few other plants. I have 23 varieties of apples 30 varieties of pears and asian pears and well as some plums plouts and peaches. I also Have a couple of lowquats figs, and guava. I hope to expand my collection of apples pears, stone fruit and other exotic fruit. It is great to find this site of other fruit growing people.

My favorite asian pears are yakumo sengokyou housi and chorjo. These are very good for fresh eating.

I just tasted "Korean Giant" last Fall, and grafted over an entire tree of Shinseiki, which I don't particularly care for. I highly recommend it, it's a giant fruit, and has a good aromatic flavor combined with a little softer, European pear like texture.
