Pyrus communisFall. Medium bittersharp English perry pear. Weston-under-Penyard, Herefordshire, circa 1790.
Herefordshire-based and world-renowned perry-maker Tom Oliver’s favorite variety, which he described in The Book of Pears as having enough tannin and acidity to make a “bold, single variety perry.” Low tannins and moderate acid levels. Yellow-green and heavily blushed red with some russeting. May bear every year if it feels like it, otherwise every other year. 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.
For 2023, European Pears and Perry Pears are on OHxF97 or a similar rootstock, and Asian Pears are on OHxF97 or Pyrus betulaefolia rootstock.
