Mid July to Early August
~Most popular pear grown today~
Picked green, but enjoyed when it ripens to a soft yellow, sometimes with a slight blush. Flesh is sweet and tender. Excellent fresh or canned. Fruit is large and appealing. Tree bears early, heavily and regularly. This variety is self-fertile in our area or add another variety for consistent production.
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.
Mid September A very old variety, most colorful pear with red lenticles on brilliant yellow skin when ripe. One of the smallest pears with moist and crisp flesh.
~ 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.
