Fall. Chance seedling. Grand Isle, VT, about 1860.
Alluringly attractive medium-sized oblong fruits are cheerful lemon yellow with a bright red blush that fades into pinkish-red dots. Don’t let the good looks freak you out. The yellow-tinged flesh is tender, melting, smooth, dense, fine-grained and juicy, with very few grit cells.
Excellent dessert pear that ripens after Seckel and keeps for 5 or 6 weeks. The Pears of New York reports that these medium-to-large healthy productive vigorous upright spreading trees “rejoice in vigor and health.”
Z4. Maine Grown. (2½-6' bare-root trees)

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.
