Description

Oh, the memories! You may recall this taste-treat of an heirloom pear from your childhood. Its distinctive pineapple-y flavor is like no other, with a sweet, tropical taste that is simply delectable. The large fruit is yellow with a red blush, and keeps very well. Excellent for canning/cooking. Tree bears a large crop at a young age, and only requires 150 chill hours to complete the fruiting cycle. Self-pollinating. A reliable pollinator for other pear trees as well. Ripens in August.
