Pyrus communis 'Ayer's'

This old variety is favored in the South as the "sugar" pear because the pulp tastes like candy! Medium sized fruit is yellow with a pronounced red blush.

This tree is fireblight resistant. It blooms early and ripens in September. It has a low chill requirement of approximately 300-400 hours and has proven to do well in the Pacific Northwest, as well as for our humid Southern growers.
