AC™ Harrow Crisp pear tree is developed by Harrow Research Station in Ontario, Canada. It was formerly know as HW 610 and is a cross between Bartlett x US56112-146. The fruit is very attractive with red blush on smooth yellow skin. The cream-white flesh is smooth, grit-free and firm even when fully ripe, with a mild sweet flavor. The tree has good resistance to fire blight similar to Harvest Queen. The fruit matures the same time as Bartlett at the beginning of September. According to Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, it can be picked over a 2-week period and early picked fruit can be stored for about 2 months. Storage life is reduced with later picking.
