Rescue: Large yellow skinned pear with slight red blush. From WSU: “found by Knox Nomura, a nursery grower near Buckley, WA. He had seen the pear at fruit shows but the exhibitor never allowed anyone to take cuttings from his tree during his lifetime, and after his death the tree was scheduled for removal to expand an adjacent cemetery. Knox Nomura ‘rescued’ scionwood from this original tree, and sent trees to Mount Vernon in 1975 for testing. Introduced in 1987.” Plant with any of the other listed varieties for cross-pollination. 

 

Seckel: Commonly known as “sugar pear” for its buttery smooth rich sweet flavor. Fruits are small and prized as sugary snacks or amazing in baked dishes. Delicious and productive. Plant with Ubileen, Moonglow, or Orcas for cross-pollination.

 

Summer Blood Birne: Super unique smaller fruit with a yellow skin and pink flesh! A great early ripening pear for fresh eating and drying. Very attractive. Plant with any of the other listed varieties for cross-pollination.
