Relatively new on the scene, this NZ pear has become very popular. It ripens late in the season, around April and has been described as having a sensational flavour - tender and juicy with a delicate sweet taste. Pollinate with Beurre Bosc, Williams bon Chretien or Winter Nelis. Deciduous.
Pears are vigorous growers and are more tolerant of adverse conditions than some other fruit trees. However they are happiest in the sun with shelter from harsh wind. They are indifferent to soil type but prefer it not to be too soggy in winter. 'Taylor's Gold' was discovered in Nelson in 1986 and has quickly gained popularity internationally.
