Our favorite! A very low chill (150 hours) hybrid between Pyrus communis and Pyrus pyrifolia. Yellow-green pear soft flesh and a sweet flavor much like an Asian pear, with a similar texture, not grainy or bitter. Excellent for fresh eating, drying or pies! High disease resistance. The best Bartlett-style pear for the South. Ripens in July. Zones 8-10. Better with pollinator.
