Organic. Kieffer pears are a personal favorite and the variety I recommend most often for planting here on the California Central Coast. The trees are vigorous, resistant to blight, and very generous producers of delicious fruit. American heirloom pears are extremely rare so the Kieffer pear tree is a special treat. Kieffer is a high quality pear ideal for fresh eating, pear honey and preserves. The Kieffer pears are golden yellow skin blushed with crimson envelops crisp, juicy, coarse-textured white flesh with musky aroma.
