Better known as Légipont (Morgan), this variety arose from a chance seedling found by M Martin Légipont, and named after the town in Belgium where he lived. It is a large pear with buttery white flesh that has a rich, sugary flavour, but best eaten when green, as the flavour tends to fade rapidly. Was commonly used as one of the varieties for making the Belgian soft fruit jam stroop.
