We grow two types of Nashi- Hosui and Kosui. They are BEAUTIFUL. For the last 2 years, Hosui has been a bit sickly, and last year, I bought a replacement Hosui which was lucky because old Hosui finally succumbed.
So I was a little worried when Hosui flowered a whole 5
days before Kosui. This is normal. But when we are only talking about 7
flowers....well, the odds of good pollination are a little longer.
Here is Kosui. She is flowering beautifully. The bees are working her very enthusiastically, but I have yet to see a bee on poor little Kosui.
Meanwhile Kosui's 7 little flowers become older and more bedraggled and as far as I can see, bee less.
Fingers crossed there was a little bit of Hosui / Kosui rompy pompy because I would be sad and sad and sad if there was a year without nashi.
