I think that the asian pear-apple would make pretty good wine, but they
are very expensive here. I used to eat them a lot in Korea. I think that
about 5-6 pounds per gallon would be a good start point. If you do make
some please let us know how it turns out. Jack Keller may already have a
recipe on his page. How about it Jack?

Hello.

I after apple, blueberry, and raspberry, I am looking at Asian Apple
Pears.  Has anyone down this?  How'd it turn out?  I only want to make
1 gallon (I'm just starting so I want lots of types but a little of
each).  How many lbs to make 1.25 gallons to start?

Thanks,
Thy

Thy and Tim, go to http://www.geocities.com/winemaking/request.html for
the recipe.  If you actually have a choice of varieties, choose the
A-Ri-Rang, Kikusui, Kosui, Seuri, Shinko, Shinsui, or Yakumo.  The4se
are the sweetest and most flavorful of them all.

If you have access to a lot of Asian or American pears, you might try making
perry - pear cider.  It is quite refreshing.  You get 2 to 3 gallons per bushel
of pears depending on your equipment.  My Seuri pear is loaded this year and
has had two branches break so far which has meant about a bushel of pears
without picking.  The original gravity for Perry is around 1.060 depending on
the pear.  It is quite a great drink with a dominent citric acid rather than
malic acid found in apple cider.

Yes, Seuri is a strong, vigorous and heavy yielding tree. What variety
are you using for a pollinator?

I had some Kikusui perry, 8% abv, one very hot early September day in
Nagoya, Japan in 1985, served very cold.  It was very smooth and a real
thirst-quincher, but it kicked my ***something fierce.  By the way,
this was a commercial perry--I've forgotten the Japanese word for it but
it means "honey-wine"--and the pear was clearly the Kikusui.  Good
stuff...!

Jack,

I have 2 Seuri pears for pollination.  Looks like the limbs might have broken
due to some help from a
possum.  There are scratch marks and the kids saw one in the orchard in broad
daylight.  I think he has been attracted to the Seuri pears.
