As the name suggests, Sucree de Montlucon is an exceptionally sweet dessert pear.

The pears have a golden green colour, readily turning deep red where the sun catches the skin. It often has patches of russet. They ripen in late October and can be kept in a fridge for 2-3 months.

Sucree de Montlucon was discovered by Monsieur Rochet of Montlucon in 1812. It was grown commercially in central France, and remains popular with amateur growers.
