Pyrus communis 'Suij'

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, and both blooms and ripens late. We got it from the Bullock family who got it from Ed Suij.
