Angers, France, 1850.
Strong, especially in the treetop with steep growing branches.
The Flowering of Doyennè is quite late, but with anther dust of high quality. Doyennè is a little bit self tolerant but the us of other varieties for pollination is recommended.
Late with unregular and moderate yields. Doyennè du Comice is very sensitive for strong fluctuations in the production, thinning is very important to prevent this. The moulting in June can also be very strong.
From late September until mid October.
Big, wide and unregular shape. The colour is yellow-brouwn, sometimes with a little red blush.
The flavour of Doyennè is very good with juicy, melting sweet pulp and a soft peel. Doyenné du Comice is very flavorful relative to other pear varieties.
Doyennè du Comice can be stored under U.L.O-conditions until mid February, combined with a very good shelf life.
