I had 2 June Sugar pears in North Georgia (Zone 7). The fruit ripened
in late June to early July. I found them inedible fresh, very dry flesh
without flavor or juice, but quality is subjective and they might cook
alright- I never bothered to try.
It did ripen much earlier than the other 20+ varieties in my orchard.
