Harrow Sweet (HW609 Cltv.)
A late-season pear developed by the Harrow Research Station in Ontario, Canada, Harrow Sweet ripens approximately three weeks after Bartlett. This variety has shown very good resistance to fire blight. The fruit size and appearance are similar to that of Bartlett; however, Harrow Sweet does develop an attractive blush. Trees should be thinned to maintain fruit size and avoid biennial bearing.
