We've had our oldest tree now 4 years and it produced well this year for the 1st time. Unlike our other Asian pear this one seems to be slightly more columnar in shape. The fruit have a terrific taste, nicely sweet and firm, and the size is larger than any you'll find in stores; ours averaged 1.5 lbs. I'm glad I have three, two came a few years later. Thinning fruit would be wise, especially on younger trees and fruit that develops on branch tip. Imagine the density of a standard Asian pear but the size of a grapefruit.

Smaller tree than usual

Surprisingly small Atago pear tree with 1/4" calibre. Last year got a Mirabelle plum tree from Raintree that was strong and was 7/8" calibre. So there were inconsistencies on tree sizes and hit-and-misses ordering trees here.
On the good sides the pear tree was in good shape and with lively buds, and this is not an easy-to-find variety that should perform well in the western Washington per WSU extension publications. But I guess I will need another 2 to 3 years to find out.
