Hachiya has large, oblong fruit with deep red-orange skin and deep orange flesh. Fruit is very sweet and flavorful- sweeter than Fuyu. Low chill hours makes it a good choice for milder climates. The fruit is astrigent until ripened- it can be left out at room temperature to ripen. It can also be dried while it is still firm and it will become sweet during the dehydration process. Very productive variety that is self-fruitful.
