~Earliest maturing red pear~
Fruit is large, dark red in color with bright white flesh. Flavor is excellent. Summer heat will not fade the red color perfect for hot California areas. Storage life is very short, 4 weeks. Use Bartlett, Harrow Delight, or Comice as a pollenizer or an Asian pear.
~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.
