Saint Mathieu pear trees

Pyrus communis

Saint Mathieu is a traditional cooking pear, originating from the border areas of northern France and Belgium.

The pears are not very palatable for eating fresh because the flesh is quite hard and tannic. However they come into their own when baked or stewed.
