European Pear - NORTHBRITE
NORTHBRITE is our food market customers favourite pear! It has eye appeal (red skin) and outstanding flavour. The sugary sweet flesh stays firm for months and picking can be done over many weeks...quite different from most European pears like Bartlett that has to be picked at exactly the right day or will go "mushy" on tree. Northbrite has great commercial potential because of its high quality and long storage capabilities. Northbrite trees are very hardy (Zone 3) and stay smaller because of precocious bearing and high productivity( large crops). Partially self-fertile but only shows full crops with a pear pollinator close by. We harvest weekly from early Sept to early Oct...as fruit gets sweeter on tree without losing its quality....great for farm markets and CSA's.
