One of Don's favorite pears with flavor more intense than the Bartlett. SDSU introduction 1973 (South Dakota E31 x Ewart). Juicy, sweet, medium bright yellow fruit. Blooms early May. Tree globe shaped. Glossy green foliage, red fall color. Excellent dessert pear for northern Great Plains. Fire blight resistant. Pollen-sterile, cannot be used to pollinate a second pear tree. 'Parker' is a good pollinator.
