Quick Reference

The Williams is a large, juicy, late-ripening dessert pear. Its name, which is short for Williams' Bon Chrétien, commemorates a Mr Williams, a nurseryman of Turnham Green who was the first to distribute it in Britain in the late eighteenth century. (Its French name, Bon Chrétien, ‘Good Christian’, comes from the description applied to Saint François, who supposedly introduced it into France in the fifteenth century.) In America it is called the Bartlett.
