Pyrus communisFall. An old dessert pear, circa 1850, discovered in Cabot, Vermont, a few miles west of the New Hampshire border and about as far north as Bangor, Maine.
A superior dessert pear with medium-large oblong pear-shaped fruit. Yellowish skin has a slight reddish blush. Yellowish sweet flesh is coarse grained, extremely juicy, with no grit cells. Not only is it a delicious dessert fruit, it is also remarkable for its very rare “double” flowers. Highly ornamental! Introduced to us many years ago by Armando Bona of Passumpsic, Vermont. Not to be confused with the old Massachusetts pear Cabot.
Annual and self-pollinating. Very hardy. Z4 or possibly even Z3. Maine Grown. (2½-6' bare-root trees)

Although some pears appear to be self-pollinating, we recommend a second variety for pollination. Bloom dates for all varieties are similar. Plant 15–20' apart.
