About Conference pears
Thomas Francis Rivers developed the Conference pear at the Rivers Nursery in Sawbridgeworth, Hertfordshire, England, in the late 1800s. The Conference pear gained its name by winning first prize the National British Pear Conference held in London in 1885. The Conference pear grows in various conditions, thriving across Europe and the Americas on sunny plots with rich soil. Its resistance to scab and other diseases further aid the Conference pear's success.
A Conference pear has many similarities to the Bosc pear. It grows with a narrow, rounded base that tapers upward to a long, thin neck. It has thick, mottled green skin with light russeting caused by weather. When the Conference pear is ripe, it turns a pale yellow. Inside, the flesh has an ivory-cream color, soft texture, and sweetness that melts in your mouth.
Conference pears are an open-pollinated botanical belonging to the Rosaceae family, along with peaches, apricots, and apples. In Belgium, the Conference pear goes by the name Belgium pear because of its native parent, the Leon LeClerc de Laval pear. It is perhaps the most well-known pear in England. Its ability to be stored for long periods of time without spoiling has made it a valuable export.
