Pineapple pear

I didn’t see any pics of pineapple pear, so I thought I would upload a couple of reference shots. This pear has been good to -29F for me (not whatever southern zone is listed on some sites), but perhaps not as good for the pallet. The skin is bitter and I have to peel them (Ayers skin is very mild in comparison). There is a hint of sweet but plenty of acid taste to me. I guess if I mixed them with pineapple, they might taste like pineapple :slight_smile:


Pineapple has been a stellar performer for me.
I get so many pears I have to brace the branches
on both of my trees. I think they taste great and are
a good change of taste in between Ayers and Maxine.
I have two drawers full in my fridge, one Maxine and one Pineapple.
I like going from one pear to the other.


My daughter loves them. I made the mistake of cutting up a big one by myself last night. Oops.
