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.
~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.
~Smooth greenish-yellow skin~
Sweet and juicy. Medium to large fruit with firm, white, crisp flesh. Thin fruit for better size (leave 1 fruit per cluster or youll have marbles). Fruit will store for up to 3 months in the refrigerator. For best production add a pollenizer.
~A heavy, precocious producer~
Elongated nut, medium-sized. Well sealed shell, but soft. Tree growth is medium-sized and stands notably more upright than Nonpareil. Almonds require another almond variety for pollination.
