Asian-Euro PEAR - KENFER
KENFER is a rare cross between the crunchy Asian pear and the more buttery European pear. Kenfer is firm pear that will store for months with very little softening. Kenfer is very hardy( Zone 3) and very resistant.to pear diseases like fireblight. Kenfer fruit looks like a Bartlett pear but is much more versatile ...you can eat it fresh(or stores for months) or in pear chutney, pies, etc. Kenfer is a much better suited pear to Canadian growing conditions than Bartlett. Kenfer fruit has very firm flesh that that does not breakdown and go mushy(like Bartlett). This allows the Kenfer grower to handle the pears without any bruising and gives grower a longer time for selling this good storing fruit.
