Parents: Australian cultivar is the result of a cross between Belle Angevine x Williams. The breeding was carried out by C. H. Packham in 1896.
Tree: The tree is initially moderately vigorous, and later on less vigorous. Moderately branched. The branching angle is not large, so it is necessary to bend the branches. It bears fruit on all types of fruit-bearing wood. It does not have satisfactory graft compatibility with quince rootstocks. As a young tree and seedling, it has a very irregular branch growth, which distinguishes it from other cultivars.
Ripening period: It ripens in mid-September.
Fruit: The fruit is medium-sized and pear-shaped, with non-smooth surface. The petiole is moderately long. The skin is thin and firm, light green in colour. The pulp is white, and the texture is fine and little sandy. Aroma and fragrance are pleasant, although less intense than in Williams. The fruits have long storage life.
Other characteristics: A late autumn cultivar that is very similar to Williams. It should be grown more extensively, since it is well accepted on the market.
