Fall. Fowler Nurseries intro, Newcastle, CA, about 1987.
Fine-textured off-white flesh is crisp, juicy, aromatic and sweet. Large conic light brown russeted fruit.
Means ‘good pear’ in Japanese. It is a good variety! One of the folks at Fowler Nurseries described it to us as having “a little bit of a zip” to it. Harvest after Hosui (which we’ve offered in the past) and before Shinko.
