More about the Orient Pear...

Not to be confused with Asian pears, the Orient is a domestic variety named because of its large round shape that is similar to that of Asian pears. The Orient pear is highly resistant to fireblight.  Orient pears are not as fine grained as the Bartletts, but many of the Orient fruits will weigh a pound a piece. The fruit are produced in abundance and ripen on the tree over a period of time. This is an advantage as you won't suddenly find yourself faced with a tree full of ripe fruit to process all at once. The fruit is excellent for canning in light syrup for dessert or salad use, but is a little too juicy for preserves. The fruits have yellow skin with smooth textured, sweet, firm, juicy, white flesh.
