White Doyenne/OHxF87

This old French cultivar is prized for its melt-in-your-mouth texture and superb flavor, both fresh and cooked. The taste has evoked poetic descriptions: 'like a fine, rich buttery chardonnay, sweet yet tart, with musky undertones and a strong perfume.' The favorite pear of famous chef Alice Waters, it ripens in September.
