A small tree with aromatic fruit shaped like a cross between a pear and an apple. Oblong furrowed pear-shaped fruit with golden-yellow skin and mild light yellow flesh. Usually eaten in stews, marmalades and jellies. Sometimes added to hard cider. Fedco grower Carol Armatis gave us jelly she made from this cultivar, which she has growing in Newport. It was fantastic! Citrusy, fragrant with an orangey-pink hue—not like anything we’ve tasted.
Large white to pink flowers. Wood of mature trees becomes impressively gnarled and twisted.
This very hardy Russian variety may be the hardiest of them all. Selected for its pineapple-like flavor notes and resistance to disease. Ripens in October in central Maine. Z4/5. (3-6' bare-root trees)

Self-fruitful but planting more than one will give better yields. Native to Asia.
