Pierre Cornielle

  • Ref: 267
  • Price: £10.00

An excellent tasting handsome pear. The medium sized conical shaped pears ripen to have a fine cinnamon russet over warm golden brown skin. The creamy white flesh is very juicy, melting, rich in flavour - sweet with balancing sharpness. Can be stored a long time until the end of the year.

Arose in France becoming known from 1892. One of a number of varieties studied for growing commercially in France. As a result recommended in 1974 but uptake was limited because of storage difficulties and skin bruising. However it is very good as a garden pear.  Smaller trees now, approx 3' tall, hence reduced price. Rootstock: Quince A

Pollination group - C  Pick -  October  Storage until - December
