Angys, the first two syllables of its name evoke Angers, the place where it was created, and the third the lily, the symbol of the Kings of France (that’s because pears have always been considered to be the "fruit of the château").
Although its related species are old varieties dating back to the beginning of the last century, Angys brings something new: the pear family has not been enriched with any new varieties for several decades.
With its pretty round silhouette covered with a coppery skin, its intensely-scented aromas, its melting, juicy flesh, Angys quite simply embodies all the sins… of the culinary arts.
It is the result of the natural crossing of the Doyenné d’Hiver and the Doyenné du Comice.
Late pear, good conservation. Fine, juicy and sweet flesh on an acid background.
It benefits both from its remarkable gustatory qualities and its exceptional conservation properties.
