Beurre Precose Morettini
- Price: £17.00
An early dessert pear that seems to perform well in the UK. Quite large pears are pyriform in shape and ripen to have a rose pink flush over a yellow base colour in August. Smooth skinned with little sign of any russet. The white flesh when ripe is juicy, sweet but with a lemony tang.
First raised in the 1930s by Alessandro Morettini at the Agricultural Faculty, Florence University, Italy. Introduced in 1956 to be grown commercially.
