Delsanne has an unusual shape for a European pear being a slightly irregular sphere. It is distinctive with its matt brown skin, which is very slightly rough, but is not unpleasant to eat. The fruit is best consumed in a soft condition when the white flesh is smooth and juicy with no grittiness. The flavour is quite distinct and the decent level of sweetness is nicely off-set by a slight tang of acid. Harvested in Autumn and stores well for several months. 

Also known as Goldember and Delbard d'Automne. Bred by Pepinieres et Roseraies George Delbard of Malicorne, France.
