KG is a high quality pear in many ways. For me I value it as a very late ripening pear spreading the season longer. Flavor profile I would say is only slightly different. Brown or yellow varieties are the only two flavors I have noticed. I like the yellow better.
Check the thread below esp. @Bhawkins’s post # 39 (who also lives in Dallas) said it was similar to but better than KG in a Dallas area. I would take his word as he lives in the same city you do.
