Pitmaston Duchess Pear

What are my special features?

Very large pale green dessert pear, rarely less than 12oz each they can make as much as 28oz in weight. A historic pear of great quality and Was once considered the premier pear for canning and bottling.


Why am I forgotten?

Its non commercial status and the lack of popularity of almost any pear that isn’t conference. Ceased to be commercial variety after WWII
