Perry Pear CollectionA bundle of 3 trees to begin your perry orchard.
Perry is fermented pear juice—the pear equivalent of hard cider. While you can ferment any pear juice, the best perry is made from small dry astringent varieties selected over the centuries just for that purpose. Most perry pears are not suitable for dessert or cooking.
Traditionally, real perry could be made only within sight of May Hill in western England. That edict has relaxed a bit and some version of perry is now being made most everywhere pears can be grown. The Orne region of Normandy is famous for its poire.
These trees are a good investment. They should live to be about 300 years old. Collection will include 3 different varieties, all individually labeled. (2½-6' bare-root trees)
