Pear suggestions please

mrsg47(7)March 10, 2013

Is there such a pear, as a 'non-gritty' tasting pear? I love pears but my husband hates the texture. Reminds him of 'canned, tinny, tasting' pear days. Would love to find a variety with little silica. Thanks, Mrs. G

Ace sent me a pear scion a couple years back called Green Jade or Crisp and Sweet (Gurney's). He told me no gritt and was one of his two best. The other one is Mishirasu.
