Re: [nafex] Oriental pear flavor

That paradox is that Asian pears do not seem particularity cold

country...i.e...Macintosh type environment.

Could it be that cool nights are needed to make the best flavor in these
pears?  If so, westerners with cool desert nights might be able to clarify
this issue.  However, given their tendency to bloom early, they might not
crop too well.  When I lived on the high plains of eastern New Mexico,
apricots were common yard trees, and though they didn't crop every year,
they apparently cropped often enough to be worth growing.  Donna
