Variety of pear tree?
I'm trying to find out if anyone knows the name of a particular variety of pear tree I've seen growing around my part of Texas (East and Gulf coast). The trees ripen around this time of year, and make huge green, hard pears, more suitable for canning, but can be eaten raw. I've seen them in the backyards of a lot of older homes, but have never known the actual name of the variety. Some of these pears can weigh a few pounds, they get so big!
