(Dan Bae or Olympic) The vigorous winter hardy tree produces at a young age and bears a heavy crop of large, round olive green fruit that can weigh up to a pound each. The fruit can be kept in unrefrigerated storage until March. This highly touted pear blooms early in the season and ripens in mid-October. It is very crisp and juicy with a high sugar content. Does well in most of the nation but can ripen too late in maritime summer climates.
