~Earliest maturing red pear~
Fruit is large, dark red in color with bright white flesh. Flavor is excellent. Summer heat will not fade the red color perfect for hot California areas. Storage life is very short, 4 weeks. Use Bartlett, Harrow Delight, or Comice as a pollenizer or an Asian pear.
Excellent quality fruit is slightly smaller with dark red skin. Resistant to rain cracking. An excellent pollenizer for most varieties; in particular, Bing. Highly productive variety.
Extra large, noticeably sweet and juicy fruit with a golden brown skin. Tree has moderately vigorous growth and is productive. Harvest is late season. This pear is a cross between Nijisseiki and Imamura Aki and is superior to Niitaka. Atago has a long and profuse bloom period, making it a good choice as a pollenizer. Very little thinning required for large fruit. Fruit hangs well on the tree.
~A heavy, precocious producer~
Elongated nut, medium-sized. Well sealed shell, but soft. Tree growth is medium-sized and stands notably more upright than Nonpareil. Almonds require another almond variety for pollination.
