Pyrus communis 'Ercolini', also known as Ercolini pear, is a cultivar of the European pear. It is a deciduous fruit tree that can grow up to 5-7 meters tall and wide when fully matured.

The fruit of the Ercolini pear is medium-sized, weighing about 150-200 grams, with a yellow-green skin that turns yellowish-brown when fully ripe. The skin is slightly rough and dotted with small brown spots. The flesh is juicy, sweet, and creamy white in color. It has a classic pear flavor, with a hint of vanilla and a slightly gritty texture.

Ercolini pear trees are known for their hardiness and disease resistance, making them a popular choice for home orchards and commercial growers alike. They are self-fruitful, but will produce more fruit with cross-pollination from another pear tree. The fruit ripens in mid to late August, and can be stored for several weeks in cold storage.

Overall, the Ercolini pear is a delicious and easy-to-grow variety that is perfect for eating fresh or for use in cooking and baking. Its classic pear flavor and texture make it a favorite among pear lovers, and its disease resistance and hardiness make it a reliable choice for any orchard.
