Red Huffcap

Another old variety of perry pear is this Red Huffcap, which may also be known as Jenkin's Red. The problem is trying to identify the various old varities, especially when the tree can be a few hundred years old. Then of course after picking and pressing we have to wait 3 or 4 months to taste it. Off to press in Ross next.
