European pear tree, favorite for canning?
I planted many fruit trees and bushes this spring, and discovered this fall that my husband loves canned pears. "You planted a pear tree, right?" No, in fact, I did not plant a European pear tree. We were lucky enough to get some unknown variety of pears from a friend's 20' high, 30 year old tree. They were ok for this year. But as I'm planning ahead for spring, I'd like advice on people's favorite varieties, especially if you like to can the pears. Thanks!
