Pear Gorham

Pear Gorham

Bred in America from Pears William and Joséphine de Malines, dual-purpose Pear Gorham is hardier and more disease-resistant than its illustrious parents, but in Ireland is best trained on a warm wall. The fruit is medium-sized to large, conical, rather than pear-shaped, and yellow with big patches of russet; the flesh is juicy, melting and fine-textured, with a sweet, musky flavour, and retains its shape when cooked. The tree is fairly vigorous and very upright; it spurs readily, is a very good pollinator and is easy to grow. Fairly reliable, though not a heavy cropper. Fruit should be thinned. Very resistant to scab, so good in wetter areas. Holds the RHS Award of Garden Merit.
