The Magness pear is a soft, juicy dessert pear.

Introduced by the USDA in 1960’s, it was named in honor of Dr. John R. Magness, long-time director of the USDA’s apple and pear breeding program. Its parents are Comice pear and Seckel pear.  Pears are a sweet, tasty fruit that’s full of fiber, low in calories, and loaded with antioxidants, including vitamin C.
