Winnal's Longdon Pear on OHxF 87 (Spring 2022)


A midseason perry pear from England.

The tree is medium-large and slow to bear. Once it enters production, however, it is very productive and largely free of scab. It tends to biennialism, and crops should be thinned to maintain regular bearing. This variety is one of the few perry pears that is compatible with quince rootstock.

Winnal's Longdon is a perry pear; it is not suitable for fresh eating. Ripening midseason, the fruit is small, with a green-yellow skin that is blushed red and slightly russeted at the ends. The lenticels are small and conspicuous. This pear should be milled within a week of harvest, and it yields a high-quality juice with moderate acids and low tannins. (From Brooks and Olmo: juice acidity 0.57, tannins 0.11, specific gravity 1.058.)

Winnal's Longdon was first raised by Mr. Winnall of Woodfield, England, in the parish of Weston-under-Penyard around 1790.
