Potomac is a modern late-season dessert pear, with good fireblight resistance. The flavour is good, being somewhat similar to the old French variety Beurre d'Anjou which is one of its parents.
It ripens around 2-3 weeks after Bartlett, and the pears can be kept in a fridge for a couple of months.
Potomac was developed specifically for fireblight resistance.

Potomac is a cross between Moonglow, a modern disease-resistant pear, and Beurre d'Anjou, a traditional French variety. It was introduced in the 1990s.
