Bagging nashi at the Togokuzan Fruit park in Nagoya Japan.
They use different color bags to get different levels of sugar. Red bags make the fruit more sweet.
In addition to the bags which protect the fruit from virus and some small insects, the whole orchard is placed under a net to keep the crows and other birds away from the apple pears.
