Southworth European PearFall. Parentage unknown. St Lawrence Nursery intro, 1968.
Green skin rarely blushed. Firm juicy flesh has few grit cells and good flavor. In the early 1900s, a Great Lakes captain transported the original scionwood from Duluth, MN, and grafted onto two trees at his property in Massena, NY. When Frank Southworth owned the property in 1967, he brought it to the attention of Fred Ashworth and it was introduced a year later.
Medium-sized tree is vigorous and very hardy. Moderate fireblight resistance. Self-fertile. Z3. Maine Grown. (2½-6' bare-root trees)
