Pyrus Humbug - Mid-Late Season Dessert Pear

Description of Humbug Pear Trees & Fruit:
This delicious eating pear has very special skin, with unique vertical stripes that make them almost too pretty to eat. The skin is also very tough for a pear, which means that they store extremely well. They are a sweet, juicy eating pear and the flesh is firm enough to hold together when you cook them. It isn't just the fruit that are stripy, the young shoots are too and look very nice in late winter and early spring.
The tree is hardier than most pears, so we recommend it if you live in the North or Scotland.
It is best to pick these pears during October and leave them to ripen in a cool, dry place for at least 2 months before you eat them and they will keep until March without refrigeration.
