This cold-hardy pear, yellow pear produces heavy crops which develop a pretty orange flush where the sun catches them. The flesh is cream colored, sweet and juicy, with an excellent flavor that rates highly in taste trials. It will store well for about ten weeks, and it holds its form when processed. It’s a good alternative to Bartlett in areas where fireblight is prevalent, since it is very resistant.

Plant where trees will get sun for most of the day in a well drained soil. Dig a hole large enough to accommodate the roots, don’t add fertilizers or compost when filling the hole, save those for a top-dressing once the tree leafs out. Always protect your new trees with a “mouse guard” either a wrap from a garden center or a tube made from hardware cloth. Apple trees set better crops when at least two different varieties are planted for cross pollination.
