Brought back by Mr. Frézier from Chile in 1714 at Plougastel, it settled in this region to become the first production area until the 40s. Since then, we find it both in Sologne, in the Oriental Pyrenees and in the middle high mountain areas. The taste quality of this fruit depends mainly on its environment and its climate.
It is the variety that is harvested in late Autumn (after optimal maturity of the Golden). It has almost disappeared from the land because it is too vulnerable to fire blight and thus has been forbidden to be replanted. It is easily recognizable on stalls because, by tradition, its peduncle ends with a hint of red wax. It is, like the Williams for summer varieties, the most aromatic autumn pear.
The vineyard peach is originally a non grafted tree. The orchard was established on seedlings stones. The orchard is not irrigated and does not suffer from chemical intervention. The production is small and we are the only one using it as a nectar.
