Sensation Red pear is a good tasting red pear.  It is a red skinned Bartlett 
pear if the Bartlett pear does well in your area.  There is one called Rogue 
Red which is a winter pear.

Subject: [NAFEX] Pear recommendations for a single home tree?

Any suggestions for the best fresh eating pear? We're looking for
something for our front yard, probably a single tree.  Ornamental
qualities would be a plus, such as fall color or a red pear. My main
interest, though, is one that will taste great.  Are all pears pretty
equal on this or does anyone have any recommendations?

Regards,

Jay
