This is actually an old seeding tree, similar shape fruit to that of williams. Definitely a decendent of a European pear.The tree is about 6m tall and slightly infested with pear slug worm. It bears heavily, but the biggest fruits are all on the top ...

Previous tennants planted these pear trees. Not sure how old they are but they look pretty well-established. We only had 3 edible fruits, the rest were all black and spotty or eaten by birds.
