This pear sizes up real nice and will fill your hand. Put this one in storage for up to 3 months. Maybe could store longer but I'm not sure. Has been used for perry (juice), which I will hopefully try soon. Excellent for eating as it almost melts in your mouth. Great pollinator for most other pear trees. TIP: If you have a pear tree that could use a pollinator and you don't know what it is, try a Patten. That said, let's hope your unknown pear isn't also a Patten, lol!
