Autumn’s freshest pears, chestnuts, and persimmons

The pick-your-own orchard Mizuta-en, in Higashimurayama-shi, is set to accept visitors for pear picking starting on Saturday, August 24, 2013. The fruit is growing well this year, as there has been no hail damage. Different varieties of pear will be ready for harvest depending on the timing: the Kosui from mid to late August, the Hosui from early to mid September, and the Seigyoku in mid September. The Inagi, which is best picked from late August to early September, is an original variety produced in Inagi-shi and popular for its juicy, subtly sweet flesh. The orchard also opens for chestnut picking in September and for persimmon picking in November. It offers the chance to harvest your own autumn delicacies right here in Tokyo.
