This selection comes to us from Mike Tedesco of WA whose grandfather brought it from San Giorgio, Calabria in 1924. Mike's family has been growing ever since (nearly 100 years!) and it is known as Nonno's (grandfather's) Italian Pear. This is a tall variety that grows best with two or three laterals. The fruit is dark pink when ripe with firm flesh that is excellent for slicing, passata and drying. Highly recommended. 91Days,9 kg
