Fruit is large, flavorful and sweet. Very similar to Bartlett. This variety is less susceptible to fireblight disease than our other pears. Use Bartlett or Comice as a pollenizer.
~ A backyard, homestead favorite~
This medium to large, tear dropped shaped fruit is a faded green color with red blush when in full sun. It is sweet, buttery, and very juicy with silky, no grit flesh. Cold hardy. Deer and fireblight resistant. Self-fruitful, however, for best production, add a pollenizer.
~Considered the King of pears~
Comice is a large, roundish rich fruit. Flesh is fine grained (smooth) with a delectable flavor that melts in your mouth. Skin color is yellow with a slight blush. Best eaten fresh after a short storage period. Can be self-fertile, but for consistent production use Super Red or Golden Russet Rose as a pollenizer.
