A fine pear of excellent flavour - the lovely perfumed flesh that sometimes tastes of vanilla is juicy, sweet & melting. Thought by some to be the finest of pears. Medium to large fruits nearly as wide as tall. Yellow, some with a red flush. Appreciates a warm sunny position. Dates back to 1849 and introduced into the UK in 1858.
Will not pollinate Onward and vice versa.
