Imagine biting into a mouthful of rice crispies and having juicy, sweet water explode all over inside your mouth:
that's an understatement of just how yummy a FlordaHome pear is!!!
Picked our first pears this week from the Flordahome pear trees: definitely a July harvest! And oh my -- had no idea this one was soooooooooo tasty!
Definitely a soft eating pear: no bellyaches from hard little baseballs here -- but crispy kinda like a Bosc and SWEEEEEET ! Juicy! 'Course we helped it a bit with regular water and some greensand magic: ask us about our free magic soil recipe!
FlordaHOME pears will need a pollinator from a different variety.
Choose another soft pear variety: either a HOOD, Spalding, or Baldwin will work as will the (hard) Pineapple Pear.
Low chill hybrid: requires only 150 chill hours to produce fruit, though many growers simply say "requires less than 400 hrs".
Not as disease resistant as the HOOD, but makes a tasty good pollinator that can be eaten fresh. The FlordaHome is a more reliable pollinator for the favored HOOD than the PINEAPPLE PEAR is.
Ripens in mid to late July
Pollinators: best with HOOD, PINEAPPLE PEAR, or SPALDING
