Sweet tasting, no seeds. First year producing fruit. I threw a blanket over the tree the first 3 years but do not intend to protect any longer in my z9a garden.

Make sure you start tasting when still green. Also try xie shan, miho or miyagawa. I have heard that Okitsu is not great but will get better over time.
