Beurre Hardy Pear


Has anyone grown this pear? How does it compare on the flavor spectrum to the classics like Comice/Magness/Bosc/Bartlett?

Where did you find it mentioned? Did it give any characteristics?

No, just that it’s a popular tree in Europe and sold out quickly the past two years at Trees of Antiquity. I was debating whether to grow it but it would mean getting rid of a different pear.

I can only tell you what this resource says. It’s an excellent resource. ‘The Directory of Pear Cultivars’ Martin Crawford.

Beurre Hardy is a sport of Red Beurre Hardy. (page 33)
