Pyrus communis 'Moonglow'
It's a wonderful night for a Moonglow pear! Known for it's early ripening, satin smooth texture, and generous size, these pears are perfect eating fresh on an August night!
Moonglow pears are fragrant, with a strong juicy flavor that rivals the best summer pears. Introduced in 1960, Moonglow pears are early to mature and ripen, about two weeks after Bartlett. Their texture is smooth with few grit cells.
Moonglow pears are disease resistant, with a strong resistance to fireblight, making Moonglow a favorite of farmer's market fruit stands and home growers.
