Extra large, noticeably sweet and juicy pear with a golden brown skin. Tree has moderately vigorous growth and is productive. Unlike most Asian pears this variety will fruit and sweeten in cooler summer locations. It's easy to recognize because of its enormous size compared with other Asian Pears. An Atago pear was recently entered into the world record books for being the heaviest pear at 6 lb 8 oz. Atago has a long and profuse bloom period, making it a good choice as a pollenizer. Very little thinning required for large fruit.
Pollinate with Nijiseiki, Shinseiki, Hosui, Shinko
