Nashi Pear - Kosui Reviews & Tips

Homegrown nashi taste amazing. I love ours and plan on planting some more varieties. This a dwarf tree and I duo-planted it with a Bartlett for cross pollination. It hasn't needed it however and sets fruit on it's own - as they out of sync here.

Bought from Fruit Salad Tree Co.  Twin grafted with a Hosui Nashi.  Tip - Don't buy multi-grafted trees unless you need to.  Rootstock is dwarfing.
