Potomac is a Moonglow x Anjou cross introduced by the Ohio State University in 1993. With it's excellent fireblight resistance and exceptional fruit quality, it is a top pick for both home orchards and commercial growers. Organic producers, in particular, favour this vigorous and precocious ( starts bearing at a young age) variety. The fruit is similar to Anjou in both form and flavour, with buttery, fine-textured flesh, and a pleasant, well-balanced taste profile. Potomac is a first-rate fresh eating pear that can keep for several months. It also works very well for canning.
