Cabot Vermont European PearFall. An old dessert pear discovered in Cabot, Vermont, a few miles west of the New Hampshire border and about as far north as Bangor, Maine. Introduced to us many years ago by Armando Bona of Passumpsic, Vermont. Not to be confused with the old Massachusetts pear Cabot.
A superior dessert pear with medium-large oblong obovate-pyriform fruit. Yellowish skin has a slight reddish blush. Yellowish sweet flesh is coarse grained, extremely juicy, with no grit cells.
Not only is it a delicious dessert fruit, it is also remarkable for its very rare “double” flowers. Highly ornamental! Annual and self-pollinating. Very hardy. Z4 or possibly even Z3. Maine Grown. (2½-6' bare-root trees)
