    no arguments with 1through 4.
    One fruit is very harsh but I would plump for pears including Nashi
    Good season length, little disease problems, easy to store, bottle, dehydrate, very digestible.
    Among my pear trees I have a Red Bartlett, first to ripen, and has a second crop after the Conference and willy bon cretin.
    Havn’t a Nashi and do not know anything about growing them but that crisp taste is sooo unique.
