Gloucester Morceau Pear 1kg
An excellent dessert pear, raised by Abbe Hardenpoint of Mons Belgium in 1750. This pear is a medium to large oval shaped fruit, smooth skin greenish yellow with some russeting. A sweet rich flavour with a white juicy flesh.
The word ‘glout’ in Walloon signifies dainty or delicate and thus ‘glou morceau’ means daintybit : ‘goulu’ on the contrary, signifies greedy, or great eater
Presumably ‘Gloucester’ derives from a similar ‘translation’ of sound rather than meaning.
