About the Magness pear

This pear was released by the USDA in 1968 as a very high quality dessert pear. The Magness pear is a soft, juicy dessert pear that keeps extremely well. Introduced by the USDA in 1960’s, it was named in honor of Dr. John R. Magness, long-time director of the USDA’s apple and pear breeding program.
