blanquilla pear
Explanation:
Hi Elinor,

The name of the variety is left untranslated, as in the following examples.

Blanquilla

This pear, the top variety in Spain, probably has been grown since before the seventeenth century. It is medium to small, with a green skin, and is often misshapen. It matures in September and can be stored for several months. It is susceptible to fireblight. (http://www.goodfruit.com/archive/August-97/special7.html)


About 70 percent of the pear crop is produced in Northeastern Spain and in the Ebro river basin. Lerida, the
main producing province, accounts for approximately 43 percent of national production. Total area planted to
pears (1997 data) is 39,000 hectares (ha), of which 35,000 ha are bearing. Blanquilla, Conference, Ercolini and
Limonera (Jules Guyot) are the most common pear varieties in Spain. Practically all of the pear crop (97.5
percent) is produced under irrigation.(http://www.fas.usda.gov/gainfiles/200009/30678231.pdf)

Hope it helps.
Cindy
