Also known as Kalle Red Pear
Red Clapp’s pears are a generous size, with gorgeous scarlet skin and pale vanilla-colored flesh. High juice content makes them superb for eating fresh but the fine-textured pear will hold its shape well for preserves or canning. For best results, thin the fruit to about 5 inches apart. Tolerates clay soil. Originated as a natural mutation of Clapp’s Favorite. Ripens in late August. Pollinator required: Choose Moonglow or Beurre Bosc.
