Truly local, the soft and juicy Beedle Pear was discovered amongst a row of Siberian seedlings on a city boulevard in St. Albert, Alberta. It's named after John Beedle who was a local urban forester. Sadly the original Beedle Pear tree was cut down and is not around today. 

The Beedle produces a pear of medium size (100 grams) which ripens on the tree and matures in early September. Expect a good eating sweet and soft juicy pear, which produces a reliable crop most years.

This pear is very hardy and is worth growing in cold climates. There is no astringency and stores well for up to a couple of months in cold storage which is rare compared to other prairie pear varieties.
