The dear Bartlett pear was originated in Berkshire England by a schoolmaster named Stair. He sold his cuttings to a horticulturist called Williams, who gave this new pear his name. When the pear immigrated to the New World, a nurseryman called Bartlett laid claim to the fruit. So English folk may know this pear as Williams, and Americans as Bartlett. And they say “paaahr”, and we say “pear.” Pears have 4 grams of fiber and Vit C and Potassium to boot. Bartletts are a wonderful variety warm and tasty.
