Discovered by chance in 1825 in France, it was brought to America in 1850. A very hardy tree that is good for short and cool summers. A medium sized pear, light green turning a pale yellow with a pink blush when ripening. The flesh is crisp, juicy and sweet. This pear is well suited for fresh eating and is excellent for canning. This one gets our attention.
