Pyrus communisFall. Sweet English perry pear. Also called Lumberscull. Probably originated near the villages of Bromsberrow and Haresfield in Gloucestershire, England, before 1900.
Sweet and astringent, with low acidity and low tannin. Perry-maker Charles Martell calls it “one of the very best vintage varieties of perry pear with all the most desirable orchard properties.” Small (2" or less) roundish fruit is yellowish-green, partly russeted and orange-blushed. Z4. (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.
