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.
