Origin and History

Found in France in the early nineteenth century and currently grown mainly in Italy, the USA and South Africa.

Fruit’s shape and size

Kaiser’s are medium-large sized and have small and stocky body.

Characteristics of ripeness of the skin, the flavour and texture

Kaiser have a distinctive and unique skin colour with hues that derive from dark brown and therefore, are so-called “Monks Frocks”. When the fruit is ready for harvesting or consumption, it becomes yellowish with rusty hues and the flesh becomes thin with rich aromas, a truly delicious pear!
