I planted a Passe Crassane this year to help me extend my fruit bearing time (harvest in December, hold until January...at least). Fresh fruit in January? Yes, please. Here's the link:
I also planted a Packham's Pride, which is a later bearing Bartlett, essentially. It's already taking off.
I've got space for one or two more, but I've got so much summer fruit, I need later bearing pears, like late September or later. Some of these sound amazing, but which ones bear later?
