Sorry, this variety is no longer available for orders in spring 2018. We will start taking fall orders on July 1st.

It was offered to me by another passionatefruit-tree grower, Mr Nicol Côté. The tree is now 30 years old and bears delicious large and sweet pears.

Loma starts to bear fruit at a young age, generally in the fifth year instead of seventh like other pears.
