Introduced in 1992; this variety is very seldom offered for sale and represents a good addition to the range of culinary Pears available.
Just a little different, this large conical Pear develops a beautiful rich red colouring when baked and also a rich, buttery flavour. The fruits are pale yellow/green with only a slight brown-red flush which makes the colouring of the cooked fruits even more surprising.
A hardy and productive tree.
Good pollinators include Josephine de Malines, Invincible, Onward, Concorde, Sensation etc.
