Do a Google search for Abate Fetel pears and see if that is it?  This is one 
of the more popular pears in Italy which is close by Greece.  We saw a lot 
of those when we were in Italy.  I have a couple of small trees growing here 
in western Washington state.

Subject: [nafex] long pears?

While vacationing in Greece, I saw pears for sale in produce stores that 
were extremely long, sort of like a butternut squash. They were actually 
bigger than I would want to eat in one sitting. Not speaking Greek, I didn't 
ask about them at the time, so I don't even know if they were grown there or 
imported. Does anyone here know about them? Is pear neck length affected by 
growing conditions, or were they an extra-long variety?
