Description

Similar to the Red Pear, and popular in the Forest of Dean in the 19th century. Makes a smallish tree, that lead to its demise in the mid 20th century when many orchard were ‘grubbed’ out, and there was little demand for Perry. Now being planted again by artisan perry makers who value it for its dark red juice and distinctive perfume which makes a characterful perry that is good for blending. This self-sterile Pear is believed to have originated from Gloucestershire, UK before 1900
