Pear tree – Better Safe (Bere Yellow)
Zone 3 self-sterile: Medium-sized pear, pale yellow in colour with white flesh. The tree gives good annual production. The fruit is juicy, tender and flavourful, with a good balance of sweetness and a slight acidity. Flowers early in the season, but its flowers have good frost-resistance. The fruit ripens in late September, and they can be kept for up to about 2 and a half months.
