This pears flesh is fine, melting, and juicy with a sweet pleasing flavor. The tree is fairly vigorous with dark shoots and pleasing foliage. Can be eaten crisp off the tree.

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.
