Sunrise Pear

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.
