What Pear Is This???
The farmer selling them said the tree was on the property when they got there. No idea what it is. I need to quiz him about thorns/no-thorns and a few other things. And I saved some seeds. Hope to get them going. I may send some to my god son and see if he can get them going. Divide and conquer.
Flavor: Sweet like candy (that said, I've been avoiding added sugar so may not taste as sweet to someone who just drank a pepsi and had cap'n crunch for breakfast). Mealy but not very mealy. Pale yellow flesh, not white. Most of them had a pink blush on one side. some did not. Didn't keep long. Ripened over 2-3 days.
