One of the finest flavoured pears of all. Raised at the Comice Horticole, Angers, France in the 1840s and introduced into Britain in 1858. Very attractive pale green-yellow fruits with pinky-red flushing, the flesh is juicy and fine-textured with the most delicious rich, buttery, sweet flesh with intense lemony undertones developing hints of vanilla and almonds. It needs a warm and sheltered site to grow and crop well, so ideal for training on a south-facing wall.
