Sucree de Montlucon

Sucrée de Montluçon
Sucree de Montlucon is listed in the RHS Plants for Pollinators

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.
