Juicy, sweet fruit with a silky, smooth texture. If you love the taste of pears, but can't stand their 'gritty' texture, then give Moonglow a try. The medium to large fruits are pale yellow with a pink blush and have an excellent, mild flavor perfect for fresh use and canning. The fruits store well with flavor peaking in cool storage 1 to 2 weeks after picking. A good variety for both commercial production and home gardens. Has some resistance to fire blight. An excellent pollinator for other pears. Ripens in August, about 1 to 2 weeks before Bartlett.
