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?
