A traditional French pear with buttery melting flesh. Small tree with small reddish-brown skinned fruit that is crisp fleshed, very sweet, juicy, perfumed, with very distinctive flavor. It can be confidently fully ripened on the tree without becoming soft and brown in the middle, although it is not a good keeper once mature. The tree is vigorous and very productive and reliable. It is also somewhat self fertile. Pollinator of all other pears that need pollinators. Known by the Bohemian settlers up the Puhoi Valley as the Honey Pear. “The flesh is juicy, melting, fragrant, and of exquisite flavour with a touch of spiciness. It is not only superb fresh but is excellent for cooking”. Mid season ripening. Ex Wellsford.
