Mid-Late Summer. Thought to be Bartlett x Flemish Beauty. William Clapp intro, Dorchester, Mass., 1840. Hardy pear common in Maine for well over 100 years.
Very juicy melting sweet fruit with that absolutely perfect pear flavor for fresh eating. Medium-large fruit is pale lemon yellow, mottled bright red. Round-bodied with a short neck. Medium-firm fine-textured with granular center.
Pick before completely ripe and finish indoors (tendency to soften at the center after ripening). Makes a great pear wine.
Z4. 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.
