The shapely, classic pear.

The distinctive gourd-like shape and elongated neck set this variety apart from others.

Ideal for fresh consumption, baking, or drying, it is best enjoyed at room temperature. Originating from Europe in the early 1800s, this fruit offers a unique and flavorful experience.
