Kosui Asian Pear
Pyrus pyrifolia 'Kosui'
This russeted selection is one of the best tasting of all Asian pears. It is a reliable bearer of medium-to-large, delicious fruit. The russeting of the skin lends a nice, nutty flavor to the eating experience.
Can be susceptible to pseudomonas in very cool, wet spring regions, but shows some fireblight resistance. It's a great choice in much of the nation.
