OVERVIEW
Description Introduced in France in 1849, this favorite is often found in fancy fruit gift packs, and considered the best tasting Pear variety. Its large, greenish-yellow fruit is blushed with red and has a sweet, juicy flavor. Lovely, white blooms appear early-to-mid spring. Fruit can be harvested beginning in late September.
