So Sweet lives up to it's name as a very sweet juicy pear!
These delicious pears are great for fresh eating and good for processing into preserves and jams. Fruit is round shaped and weighs around 90 grams. The So Sweet Pear tree can start bearing fruit as young as five years of age and is a productive tree. These pears ripen around mid to late August and will keep for under one month in cold storage. This tree is also self-fertile, but will produce considerably more if planted with another pear tree nearby.
