Anybody hear growing these? Have been curious about these varieties as I have not heard much about them. FB resistant? Good fruit quality? Anybody have any idead of chill hour requirement? Thanks for any reports.

I have mishirasu. A few fruits last season so far I like it a lot. Will know more in six months.

I have Yoinashi. Its grown well, with no fire blight or other problems. this year it has a lot of blooms (its the first year I've gotten blooms on it) and I'm hoping to know about the fruit in a few months.

Yoinashi is a high quality asian pear, its one of my favorites. It has a butterscotch flavor.

Thanks for the input guys. I will probably have to try and add some of these. I had hoped some of the Texas contingency would have tried some of these but as with a lot of this trial and error is the best way to find out. Thanks again for the reports.

Hi Scaper, I've got a Yoinashi in its 3rd leaf, but nothing to report yet
