What is Grand Champion Pear

Grand Champion Pear (scientific name: Pyrus communis cv. Grand Champion Pear) is a species of Western pear, discovered in 1936 in Oregon, USA as a mutation of Gorham "Josephine de Malines" Williams. It was registered in the U.S. in 1943 and introduced to Japan in 1953.
The fruits are small in size, but are popular for their rich flavor, which combines the sweetness of the pear with a sourness.
Flowers appear in April and are harvested from September to October, but the best season is from early October to early November, as they need to ripen for about two weeks before they are tasty. Pears are not ripened on the tree but picked and stored.
