Any fans of Tsu Li, Ya Li or Sueri Chinese pears?
I am thinning out my pear stand, I just chopped down a dozen trees this evening. They were only 2' apart in 6 hours of sun, don't do that :-)
Does anyone have strongly positive opinions about any of the three Chinese pears in the title above? They take longer to fruit than the Japanese ones for some reason and I have not fruited any of them yet. But, I also have not heard many people interested in growing them so am wondering if I should just not take them out and keep my excellent Japanese ones instead (Hosui, Chojuro, Yoinashi, Kosui, Shinsui, etc). I have one very nice Chinese type which is a UC Davis breeding program fruit, Shin-Li. It is a very late (for asian) crisp mild pear which I am definitely keeping. I also have several of the Chinese fragrant pear types which have not fruited yet. The Chinese ones tend to be more mild I believe.
