Comice (Doyenne du Comice) – France 1849

Fruit large, greenish-yellow when ripe. Perhaps the queen of winter pears. Flesh is buttery, sweet, tender and aromatic. Its low chilling requirement makes it suitable for southern California. As with Anjou, these need a period of cold storage before ripening. Tends towards biennial bearing.

Uses: Fresh Eating

Harvest: Very Late

Zones: 6-10
