Unhandsome but Luscious Pear
This seedling pear shows a tendency to depart from the typical pear shape, being much broader at the base, and correspondingly less graceful, than the favorite varieties. It has, however, qualities of flesh that commend it, but these were not considered by Mr. Burbank to be sufficiently exceptional to warrant the introduction of the fruit.
