  • Deveci Pear - From Turkey, a well-known pear sought after for years. It was a hidden secret of the owner and was found growing in a dense forest, unseen by passersby. This pear has a beautiful red blush and is round and squatty. It is similar to an Asian pear but with all the texture and full body of a European pear. This pear comes highly recommended from us and friends in Turkey. It is grafted on to OHxF87 semi-dwarf pear root stock.
