Very good tough-skinned storage pear—will keep until April in the root cellar. Greenish-mottled medium-small pear-shaped fruit with some russet splashes or dots. Coarse flesh with a good flavor. Very hard off the tree; don’t begin to eat them until a month after picking.
Years ago this nameless winter pear found its way from the roadside near Frankendorf to Unity, Maine. The name came later, courtesy of grower Howard Wulf who calls it “the latest-keeping pear I’ve ever seen.” Sturdy adaptable hardy precocious tree. Recommended for those who want pears into January. Z4. Maine Grown. (2½-6' bare-root trees)
