Queen of the pears

Williams Christ

Once again they are now hanging on the trees - ripe, sweet and juicy: the pears’ season has started. Today there exist more than 5.000 pear varieties, but the Williams Christ is still the queen among them. Named after its first propagator Williams, head of a London tree nursery, it is known by its fine, sweet melting flesh, its intensive aromatic taste and its typical slightly crooked form with a nice green to golden colour – simply the queen among the pears, which by the way is also the “mom” of the fine ARTEVOS pear “Harrow Sweet”
