Beurre Hardy

This late ripening pear originates in the Anjou region of France where many of our best pears come from. It's a medium sized roundish pear with a deep orangy brown skin with a fair amount of russet. The yellowish-white flesh is fine, juicy, and of excellent flavour.  Bears heavily and crops regularly. An instant favourite! Cooks well. Pollination by any other variety of our pears.

Pollination Guide
