Here is another exciting option for the far north pear enthusiast. The real name for this Russian variety resembles a random string of consonants, but when translated, it comes out as True and Faithful, so that's what it is called here. The medium sized, greenish pears exhibit an appealing golden-yellow bluish by picking time. Fine grained, creamy flesh is sweet and very juicy. Storage is good - approximately 2-3 months. True and Faithful is fast growing, hardy, and dependable.
