Pyrus communis 'Sunrise'
Sunrise is a fire blight resistant early season pear that ripens a couple weeks before Bartlett, close to Clapp's Favorite time. It has a yellow skin with a slight pink blush and little russetting. The fruit has a sweet pleasant flavor and will store for a couple months. Harvests in mid-late August.
Sunrise is another new introduction from the cooperative efforts of USDA and Ohio State University.
