Pear 'Beurre d'Anjou', early September. "The origin and naming of 'Beurre d'Anjou' is uncertain. It probably originated in the Angers region of France. It was introduced into Britain by Thomas Rivers early in the 19th century. It has been grown commercially, particularly in the USA where a red clone 'Red Anjou' is also grown. Tree growth is weak and compact, and it does not ripen well in Britain, but fruit size is always good." ('Pears' by Jim Arbury and Sally Pinhey)
