An 'orchard grade' is a tree that may be on the shorter side, may be crooked or with slight damage. These trees will still produce the very same fruit as a first or number 1 will. They may need to be staked and they do need regular watering, fertilizer and protection from weeds and hungry animals. All trees will benefit from pruning.
Kosui produces attractive medium-sized, yellow orange fruit with a slight bronze russet. Sweet, low acid flesh gives this crisp, juicy pear the delightful flavour it is noted for. Compact tree with spreading growth habit shows more fireblight resistance than most Asians. Kosui means 'good water' in the Japanese language.
