Pear tree – Luscious
Zone 3 self-sterile: This pear is very similar to the Bartlett pear: firm but juicy, and versitile – it can be eaten directly when harvested or conserved for later, and is also an excellent pear for baking. The fruit is medium-sized, yellow with a pink tint. It is very good quality, juicy and sweet, mild and firm when harvested. Harvest starts at the end of September. The pear tree is very hardy with a certain resistance to fire blight. Its leaves are also particularly lustrous and turn red in fall.
