Fresh fruit, cooking, drying, juicing and preserving.
Three very popular varieties grafted onto one tree. Beurre Bosc - The Belgian Butter Pear. An old world heirloom from the early 1800's. A very strong growing tree. Pears are medium-large, heavily russetted brown with yellow base colour. The firm, yellowish-white flesh is slightly grainy and has an excellent, sweet flavour. Packham's - An Australian variety from the early 1900's. Fruit is medium-large, light green-yellowish skin with white, firm, very juicy and smooth textured flesh. Richly flavoured and a good sweet/acid balance. Very productive. Williams - Another old world heirloom variety - U.K 1770's. Moderately vigorous, yielding heavy and regular crops of yellow skinned fruit with white, fine grained flesh which is firm, sweet and very juicy. Excellent flavour.
These trees will pollinate each other.
HINT: Harvest when firm and refrigerate for 1-2 weeks until fully ripe.
Beurre Bosc ripens early March, Packham's February/March and Williams February.
