Ripens right on the tree! As most pears would need to be harvested before being ripe to avoid core rot, this one you can allow to tree ripen. A 1934 University of Minnesota introduction. Open-pollinated seedling of a Manchurian pear. Large, yellow-bronze fruit. Fine grained, tender and juicy. This one is a favorite for canning. Halve it, core it, can it. Leave the skin on for canning, it is fantastic! Pollinator for 'Luscious'.
