Krazulya Pear

Russian Almond is a low maintenance, short, slightly suckering shrub. It is covered with attractive, bright pink flowers in early spring before its foliage emerges.

This hardy species forms dense thickets attracts wildlife. Russian Almond prefers full sun and well-drained soils, but can tolerate moist soils.

The nuts it produces are quite attractive but very small. They are bitter and possibly toxic in large quantities.

Krazulya Pear was developed in Russia and is said to be one of the most delicious and hardiest pears. “Krazulya” - meaning “beauty” in Russian - is true to its name in that the pears are a luscious yellow with bright, red cheeks.

A peculiar feature of Krazulya Pear is that the pears can be eaten directly off the tree and don’t need time to ripen. The downside is that the pears only keep 1-2 weeks.

Krazulya Pear has been described as juicy and buttery, with a slight spice undertone. An additional pear tree is required within 150 m (500’) for cross pollination and fruit production to occur.
