Medium-sized pears are light yellow with an orange to greyish-red blush. The sweet fruit has a delicious citrusy aftertaste. Although the fruit is good fresh eating, we prefer to cook it. Precocious and productive with large crops most years.
Long ago, friends told John Bunker about this pear growing in Stacyville in southern Aroostook County. When he finally saw it, he thought the 50' vase-shaped tree was an elm! Held together with cables, the old tree was still bearing huge crops.
Appears to be self-pollinating. Disease resistant, extremely hardy and very vigorous. They don’t keep for long; use them up quickly! Rare. Z3. Maine Grown. (2½-6' bare-root trees)
