Suij E Pear - Semi-dwarf

Pronounced "Sigh", this is a pear that you pick while its rock hard in October or November and store it in a root cellar and eat fresh through March. This type of pear was popular for hundreds of years in Europe where people used it as a staple food through the winter but has gone out of fashion in the last 60 years. Suij is one of the best of this type. It makes a delicious and beautiful pink pear sauce. It is a cross of Comice and the winter keeper St. Remi. We got it from the Bullock family who got it from Ed Suij. On OHxF87 semi-dwarf rootstock.
