Passe-Crassane Pear 

A variety developed by M. Boisbunel, a nurseryman from Rouen, France.

The famous Passe-Crassane pear is available from December to March-April, its marbled yellow skin covering very juicy tart flesh. A large round fruit, it is sometimes distinguished by a few seeds that enhance its flavor. 

Particular sign 
It has a red wax seal on its peduncle to slow the evaporation of its water and thus its ripening.

Created in 1845 by Boisbunel
