Orient Pear is a fast-growing deciduous tree with an attractive spring flower display but primarily grown for its heavy crop of large late summer fruit.  Clusters of fragrant of creamy white spring flowers attract butterflies before the foliage emerges The large aromatic fruits have a rounded shape with golden yellow skin and melting creamy flesh with a mild flavor.  Grows best in full sun and rich, moist well-drained soils. Orient has improved resistance to leaf spot and fire blight, needs a cross-pollinator, and has a low chill requirement of 350-400 hours.
