Description

One of the oldest of all pear varieties - it has been suggested that this is the pear written about by the Roman historian Pliny. The first reference in England was by John Parkinson in 1629. For many years this was regarded as the best of the early pears, and few of the newer varieties which are more popular today can rival it for taste. Attractive fruits with yellow-white tender juicy flesh, best eaten straight off the tree. Reliable cropper suitable for growing in the North, but a tip-bearing variety, so take care when pruning. (qv ‘Cuisse madame’)
