Cocktail Pear 'Faccia Rosa'
This rare golf-ball sized Italian heirloom pear is an early season treat. Ripening just after the stone fruit this is one of the earliest of pears but it won't store so is best eaten straight from the backyard tree. Starting yellow/green the skin turns an orangey red (hence the name - red face ) indicating when to enjoy the soft white fleshed sweet and juicy little pears. Pollinated by Corella and San Giovanni pears.
