[nafex] Re: Asian Pears


    For an earlier, very juicy Asian, both Shinseiki and Nijiseiki 
are good, I've had them fruiting for a number of years.  

Both seem very susceptible to a buroughing fruit "moth".  They attack 
the fruit late in the development cycle and what seems like "perfect" 
fruit appears to ripen *very* early and drop from the tree.  The 
inside is often almost completely tunneled and brown w/ frass.  I 
don't eat one w/out quartering the fruit.
