New World Asian pear cultivar
I've never been a fan of Asian pears; I like mine soft. (Of course I've only eaten store-bought ones). On a lark I bought some at Costco and one of my sons just loved it. He said he always hated the squishiness of pears.
So now I am thinking about getting an Asian and I don't have a clue what to try. I was on Cliff England's site and was wondering about the New World cultivar he is selling. It is a cross between Bartlett European pear and Korean Giant Asian Pear.
I don't have a lot of fireblight issues here, but we do have a short growing season.
Has anyone here tried the New World or does anyone have any other suggestions for me?
