Enjoy Sirrine for its rich buttery flavor. Medium size fruit is elongated with yellow, somewhat russetted skin. Fruit ripens here in early September and blooms in early mid season. It is great for drying, retaining its flavor and aroma. It was introduced in 1969. It is an open pollinated Bartlett seedling from Long Island NY. It has proven a winner in New York and Western Washington fruit trials. Its growth habit is more spreading than most pears.
