Pear Emile d'Heyst

Pear Emile d’Heyst

A very reliable dessert pear for our climate, bred in Belgium, Pyrus communis Emile d'Heyst is a tree with a spreading habit, not very vigorous. The fruit is small to medium-sized, with a yellowish-green skin with some russeting. The white flesh is firm, creamy and fairly juicy, with a sweet, sub-acid flavour. This pear is a heavy, reliable cropper, but is self-sterile, so it will need a pollination partner; Pear Conference, also very reliable in our climate, is a good pollination partner. Pear Emile d’Heyst is a spur-bearer, and a disease-resistant tree with attractive blossom. Pick when still firm, and ripen indoors.
