Pears

Pyrus communis

Varieties

  • Conference

    This is dessert pear, British in origin. The conference is large, slender and sometimes irregularly shaped. This pear is yellowish-green in colour with large reddish-brown patches. The pale, slightly orange flesh is firm, juicy and sweet. The skin is rather hard. The conference is an exceptional dessert pear.

  • Beurré Alexander Lucas

    A large, mild flavoured dessert pear, which stores well, like Conference and Doyenné du Comice. The flesh is quite coarse and gritty, fairly juicy and mildly sweet. If artificially cooled at a temperature of – 0.5 to 0°C these pears can be successfully stored until the end of January.

Grading by size

The size of pears is quite variable, ranging from 45mm to 80mm. Careful cultivation ensures that a minimal part of the crop falls below 55mm, with approximately half the crop falling within the range of 55 to 65mm and the other half between 65 and 75mm. The fruits are graded per 5mm.

45 – 50 ± 11 – 12 pears in 1 kg
50 – 55 ± 9 – 10 pears in 1 kg
55 – 60 ± 7 – 8 pears in 1 kg
