Beurre Hardy is a classic French pear from the early 19th century, which has long been popular in the Uk and Ireland.
Beurre Hardy has an excellent flavour, and the buttery melting flesh which is characteristic of the best quality French pears.
As with most high quality pears, pick when still firm / hard, and ripen indoors.
