Becoming a popular cultivar because of the superior quality of the fruit. Potomac pears are sweet, buttery and extremely juicy. Pleasant sub-acid flavor and aroma gives it some zing. Tree is vigorous and fairly precocious, meaning it comes into bearing faster. Pollinates with other European pears and is fire blight resistant. A Moonglow-Anjou cross, it is one of the highest quality fireblight resistant varieties available. Introduced in 1993 from the Kearneysville, West Virginia USDA station.
