The most popular commercial variety in UK, but uncommon in Australia. Long thin green fruits with some russet, delicate melting flesh when allowed to ripen properly. The key is to pick them when they are still firm and then ripen them on a window sill for 3-4 weeks. Ripen mid season, late March. Keeps well if put into a cool place. Is partially self fertile, but will crop better if near another variety of our pears.
