Fruit pressure is not as good a measure of maturity in Asian pears as it is in European pears. Late Bearing Pear Trees. Pears have been cultivated for the fruit they bear for more than 5, years.

To determine the heat accumulation required for bloom and harvest of ‘Sirora’ pistachio (Pistacia vera) trees, combinations of base temperature (T b), optimum temperature (T u) and critical temperature (T c) were eight seasons’ data, we attempted to find the smallest variation for heat accumulation for bloom and harvest.
