Summercrisp’ is an exceeedingly cold-hardy, early season Pear introduced by the University of Minnesota in 1987. As its name suggests, it features a summer harvest generally with fruit ready to pick in mid-August. The sweet, 3-4″ long Pears are best enjoyed right off the tree with crisp flesh and medium green skin with a slight red blush or even when they becomes fully ripe as indicated when its skinl starts to yellow. If harvested before the skin yellows and stored in refrigeration, the fruits can last up to 6 weeks making it stand out among other Pears for keeping. Sweet and crisp, these Pears are excellent for summer fruit salads but is not as desireable for canning because its grit becomes more detectable when the fruit is processed. Resistant to most diseases and pests, ‘Summercrisp’ is a great selection for the edible gardener who wants to grow Pears with a minimum of pesticides. ‘Summercrisp’ does require another Pear variety to ensure proper cross-pollination and heavy fruit production.
