From the founding of Jamestown to the time of Washington and Jefferson, every plantation owner made cider, drank cider, and bragged about his cider.
Korean Giant has the largest fruit of any of the Asian pears. It will grow to two pounds if thinned in the spring. This cultivar ripens the first week in September with golden-tan fruit.
