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.
~ 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.
