Brandy (Perry) Pear

Pear

Description: Brandy is an old perry pear variety. The fruit is small and pale greenish-yellow with a bright red flush. Crops heavily with a tendency to bear biennially. The tree is small to medium and makes an average quality perry which makes it perfect for the smaller garden or a small orchard space. Makes a delicious drink on it's own but is always best to mix at least another type of pear to add extra taste. Also disease resistant.

History: Originates from Gloucestershire during the 19th Century.
