Red Flesh Pears and Movie References

Posted by John Kring on Apr 6th 2019

The Rotkottis Frau Ostergotland is one of two red flesh pears we offer at Maple Valley Orchards.  The downside of this pear is that you need to keep a close eye on it for fire blight.  It's been a bit of a battle at the Gillett orchard but we have had no issue with it at the Suamico orchard.  

Jim, your stick will ship on Monday.   It's been rumored that when you say the name of this pear outloud that you'll hear horses whinny in the distance.   What's the movie reference?
