I recently tried a delicious pear from Organic Planet Market in Edmonton. These 'Klapperton Red' pears were a smaller sized, brilliant red (not dark red like a Red Anjou or Bartlett, more of a bright deep pink), very juicy and delicious desert pear. I've never seen or heard of them before and I'm curious to know more about them (where developed, parentage, growth/harvest/storage/hardiness information, etc). All I could find on the internet was that three different organic wholesalers in the B.C. Okanogan offered the pears for sale.
Thank-you (and I apologise for filling your inbox this afternoon),
