Large, broad based, narrow necked, greenish yellow fruit with red blush and light russet.
Rich, juicy, firm, sweet, and finely textured flesh making it a premium dessert pear that is too delicate for cooking. This one begs to be eaten fresh.
Requires pollination – Bartlett or Anjou are good choices.
Outstanding winter pear that originated in France.
Ussuriensis is a very cold hardy rootstock that is hardy to -50 F
