Definitely the best flavoured pear, but also more difficult to grow. Without pollination, it will not produce any pears. Good pollinators are Winter Nelis, Concorde and in most years Conference. The tree is very vigorous. Moderate crops. Usually of superior fruit size. Introduced from France in 1858. Particularly suitable for growing along a south- or west-facing wall.
