<b>The Williams Pear</b><p>Discovered originally around 1770 by a schoolmaster from Aldermaston in England named Mr. Stair, the variety was further developed by Richard Williams, who introduced it to England as Williams' Bon Chrétien (Williams' good Christian – shortened to Williams Pear). In the USA its original name was lost and it was introduced there as the Bartellet Pear. Pears are usually grafted onto quince rootstocks. Some varieties such as Williams Pear, however, are not compatible with quince, and these require double working. This means that a piece of pear graft-work compatible with both the quince rootstock and the pear variety is used as an intermediate between the two. The tree is moderately vigorous and blooms in mid-late season. It is an early, heavy and consistent cropper.The fruit is medium sized with a short to medium-long stem. It is covered with a smooth, thin skin and ripens in late August to early September to bright yellow from light green. Flesh is white, juicy, melting, sweet, aromatic, of very fine texture and of excellent flavour.
