Pyrus communis 'Highland'

Celebrate the winter holidays with Highland! The highest-quality storage pear; it thrives throughout the nation. This large, attractive dessert pear is yellow with some russetting. The flesh is very smooth in texture and rich in flavor.

Trees are very hardy, of moderate vigor and very productive. The fruit matures in early October and develops its best quality if stored about a month. Pull fruit out of storage and ripen on your counter through the end of the year. Highland was developed at the Geneva station in New York state.
