Grown in Worcester before 1575 and is believed to be the pear on Worcester City coat of arms.
A Large, oval fruit with dull green skin almost entirely covered with a reddish brown russet. The flesh is pale yellow, hard, and gritty with little flavour when eaten raw. Never softens sufficiently to be used as a dessert pear. But one of the best cooking pears.
