Old Varieties

ATLANTIC QUEEN - this is an old French pear which we discovered in a garden close to the seashore. The tree was imported together with other varieties thirty years ago. It has thrived marvelously under the most adverse conditions. The vicinity of salt water - poor soil in which it was planted - and the intense summer heat - left the tree unaffected, whereas, a Bartlett of Anjou, or any seemingly popular variety, would have withered or grown poorly under such circumstances. In fact, some such varieties planted nearby are in secondary state because the location was not ideal for planting pear trees. Conditions usually causing Fire Blight were dominant, but no trace was found that the tree was ever affected by it at any time. The tree is prolific bearer. The fruit is firm, of immense size, weight up to 1 1/2 pounds. The skin is yellow green - the fine, melting flesh is very juicy and sweet with the most delicious aroma all it's own - by far it cannot be approached by the famed Comice (Royal Rivera) which grows only conditionally here in the East. Ripens in September.
