Description

Origin: England. Free pollination of Léon Leclerc de Laval, known since 1885.
Tree: medium-low vigour with good affinity with quince; early bearing, productivity high and consistent over
time due to parthenocarpy.
Fruit: medium size, slender, pearshaped; yellowish-green skin with russetting, flesh is yellowish-white
juicy, sweet, melting, aromatic and of excellent flavour.
Overall: of interest for excellent flavour and for good storage potential (up to 180-210 days with modified
atmosphere). In over-ripe fruit the flesh texture tends to collapse easily.
