History and description of Louise Bonne of Jersey

Louise Bonne of Jersey pear was raised by Longueval, Avranches, Normandy, France c 1780. The name arose probably because it was introduced to England via the Channel Island of Jersey.

Medium sized, conical fruit. Smooth pale green skin turning slightly yellow with ripening. Red flush and almost no russet. White, smooth, melting flesh. Sweet but with a distinct acidity giving it an unusual but very pleasant flavour.

Moderately vigorous tree. Heavy cropper sometimes requiring thinning to produce good size fruit. Partial tip bearer.
