This large, attractive, yellow pear is aptly named, as it is one of the first to ripen. Juicy and aromatic, with a sweet, pleasant flavour for fresh eating or desserts. Sunrise stores surprisingly well for an early pear. It will keep 2-3 months in the refrigerator. Disease resistance, including fireblight, is excellent too.
