Shizuka

Shizuka

A sister to Mutsu developed in Japan. Reported to be blister spot resistant. Fruit is large like Mutsu, but has a milder, sweeter flavor. Shizuka matures two weeks before its sister and exhibits less bitter pit. Tree vigor appears to be similar to that of Mutsu. This has become an important variety for many direct market growers.
