Courthouse Soft Pear – Super Tough!
A Just Fruits find! We discovered this pear tree growing behind the Wakulla County Courthouse in Crawfordville Florida. Having grown up in Wakulla, I’ve long admired this tree for its ability to thrive under absolute street-side adversity and still produce heavy crops yearly. Courthouse pear fruit is fantastic. Beautiful, thin, red-blushed soft pears are sweet and juicy. Ripens mid-August. Pollinate with GOLDEN BOY, KEIFFER, LE CONTE, ORIENT, SOUTHERN BARTLETT or TENNS. Zones 8A-9.
