You can expect to harvest from this annual bearer every August, when the fruit is sweet and crisp and still green with a red blush. This early ripening pear has the crunch and juiciness of an Asian pear with a slight aromatic flavor. Harvest fruit before it is fully ripe and keep in cold storage for up to 2 months. Very cold hardy. Pollinate with Parker or another pear.
Hardy to -30°
