Ayer's E. Pear/OHxF87 [SPRING]
This old variety is favored in the South as the "sugar" pear because the pulp tastes like candy. The tree is fire blight resistant and the medium size fruit is yellow with a red blush. It blooms early and ripens in September. It has a high chill requirement and has proven to do well in the Pacific Northwest. USDA Zones 5-8.
