RED D'ANJOU Oregon 1950's


The Red Anjou originated as naturally occurring bud sport found on Green Anjou trees. "Bud sports" are spontaneous, naturally occurring transformations that crop up on trees. The Red Anjou, however, are an exception. They occurred twice, as the first red sport of Anjou was discovered in the early 1950's near Medford, Oregon, and a second red sport was discovered in the late 1970's in Parkdale, Oregon. Red Anjou pears are very similar to the original Anjou other than color. Large, conical short-necked fruit, with some russeting. Mild, melting white flesh with delicate aroma. Best quality after cold storage. Excellent for pear crisp. Trees are vigorous and hardy and moderately resistant to fire blight.
