Luscious Pear

Pyrus communis 'Luscious'

Luscious pear is very hardy and resistant to fire blight. It is an excellent dessert pear, but not well suited to canning. The fruit is medium size, bright yellow with a little red blush. Flavor is similar but more intense than Bartlett. It is a juicy, pleasant and sweet flavored pear that is good for northern, cold climes. It ripens in late September.

Luscious was developed by South Dakota State University especially for the cold Northern Great Plains, and was introduced in 1967.
