"Buerre Dumont and "Dumont" should be the same cultivar. "Buerre", the
French word for "butter" was often used as the first word in the names
of pears that originated in France or Belgium to connote that a
particular cultivar whose flesh had a smooth, buttery texture when ripe.

Subject: [NAFEX] Pears Compatible with Quince Rootstock
Does anyone have any idea where one could obtain the Swiss
Bartlett or another Bartlett strain that is compatible with quince? See
the list from OSU:
http://www.ars-grin.gov/cor/catalogs/pyrcompatible.html for other
compatible pears. They list the Swiss Compatible and the French
Compatible Bartlett as being compatible with the quince rootstock. Has
anyone had any experience with these Bartlett strains or any other
Bartlett strains that are quince compatible? If so, what has been your
experience? Are they the same as any other Bartlett taste and other
characteristics for use?
One other thing, there is a Beurre Dumont listed in compatible
lists and a Dumont listed in the incompatible lists. I have a Dumont
that I have had for 20 years or so in nursery rows. I have it on quince
rootstock too. I don't know if I originally received it as Beurre
Dumont or as plain Dumont. Do you have any idea what is the difference
between the two? The Fruit, Berry, and Nut Inventory lists it as the
same. I know that when I refer to like Beurre d'Anjou I just call it
Anjou without the "Beurre" part.
