Nashi Hiratsuka 16 Gou (Japanese pear Hiratsuka 16) is a mid-maturing, smooth-skin type Japanese pear. It originated from a cross between Shinko x Kosui, produced by the National Institute of Fruit Tree Science in 1953, and subjected to local adaptability tests from 1967. It has good fruit quality with aroma, but has a tendency to preharvest drop, and a relatively short shelf life among mid-maturing pears.
