Dazzling Gold


Dazzling Gold is a relatively large golden brown pear with firm and bright white flesh and a full sweet flavour. In the UK, some consumers do compare the flavour to the ‘pear drop’ sweets that are so popular there. The Dazzling Gold is delicious not only as a hand pear but also highly suitable as a stewing pear thanks to its firm flesh.

Dazzling Gold is the trade name for the pear variety UTA, created in Germany in 2010 from a cross between the older pear varieties ‘Madame Verté’ and ‘Boscs Flaschen’. It has been an exclusive club variety of Staay Food Group since 2014.

Other Staay club varieties are the Red Conference and Early Desire.
