Are there any
very rare pears that are deliciously recommended? I do see a couple of other posts, but perhaps there have been updates over the past year or so?
I recently (last fall) got to try some pears and wanted to share some pictures of the ones I liked best
. These pears were still hanging as of early November in zone 8b.
My three favorite are El Dorado, Nashpati, and Xue Hua Li (Snowflake).
Syan Li was good, too, but didn’t make my top 3 (maybe it should).
Included photos are of these types:

For European pears I like Warren as it tasted good being super sweet and is disease resistant. Magness is also disease resistant but will not pollinate any other pear. Everyone likes Comice but it is not as disease resistant.
Those are all good looking pears!
How did you like Jonathorp? I had a failed graft of this variety a few years ago, wondering if I should try it again in the future.
are you 8b pnw, 8b texas, 8b south carolina, or 8b somewhere else? big differences
