I'm interested in it because it is reported to be an excellent winter pear and that it stores well in home conditions. Saving an old variety is a bonus.

It is quite difficult to search for it online because "Lawrence" is mentioned in other contexts.

Did anybody have experience with it?

Does anybody know a source of grafted Lawrence pears?

The Corvallis repository has it:

If anybody has other suggestions for good winter pears that can be stored in home conditions, I'm all ears :-)

Thanks a lot!
