From the Agriculture Canada station at Harrow, this is a high-quality, early, fresh market pear with excellent BLIGHT RESISTANCE. Also RESISTANT TO PEAR SCAB. Harvest about two weeks before Bartlett. Fruit is medium size and similar to Bartlett in appearance with excellent flavor and smooth flesh. Ground color is yellow with a red blush. Early bearing. (Notes from Daniel Koeneman in Texas: the pears are small but with an intense, complex flavor and smooth texture. It is early-- picked green the 1st week of August to beat the heat and squirrels-- and reliable.)
