Description

Known locally as the ‘Hazel’ pear, this very old variety probably arose at Hessle near Hull, East Yorkshire and was first recorded in 1827, though is almost certainly much older. Small greenish-yellow fruit overlaid with some russeting, the flesh is white, juicy and fairly sweet. The main advantage of this pear is that it is extremely hardy and reliable, has some resistance to scab, canker, and mildew, and will grow and fruit just about anywhere. Not a pear for storing.
