A popular pear, very sweet and with a fine texture. Introduced from France in 1849 it is still widely grown in the UK for it’s excellent flavour.  The shape is wide, almost conical. The skin is smooth, with pale gold and pale green patches. It also on a hot year has a salmon pink blush on the sun side of the fruit. It eats very well when fully ripe and can also be cooked with.
