I was looking for a third pear tree as pollination partner for the two Bartlett trees I already have.
I was looking for something different and blight resistant.  Kikusui seems to fit the bill.
Does anyone have first hand experience growimg them?

I thought Asian and European pears didn’t pollinate each other very well? Maybe there are exceptions?
 
Blueberry pie is best when it is firm and you can hold in your hand. Smell it. And smell this tiny ad:
