Pyrus communisFall-Winter. 5-235 [Comice x (Seckel x Farmingdale seedling #122)] Frank Reimer intro, Southern OR Exp Stn, Medford, OR, 1969.
Very sweet high-quality late-ripening dessert pear with buttery cream-colored flesh and very few grit cells. Large Seckel-shaped mostly red-blushed and partially russeted fruit. Harvest about the time of Bosc. Said to be a very good winter keeper. Sometimes mistakenly called Rouge Red, an understandable slip-up considering its red skin. Vigorous upright annual-bearing moderately productive tree. Shows tolerance to fireblight; resistant to pear scab. Z3/4. Maine Grown. (2½-6' bare-root trees)
265 Rogue Red

Although some pears appear to be self-pollinating, we recommend a second variety for pollination. Bloom dates for all varieties are similar. Plant 15–20' apart. For 2024, European Pears and Perry Pears are on OHxF97 or a similar rootstock.
