BBC News – Poor pear harvest in Herefordshire for perry cider

There could be less Real Perry next year if this report comes true. Tom Oliver from Oliver’s Cider and Perry is experiencing smaller crops of perry pears this year, which is bad news for perry drinkers.

via Perry comes from perry pears which are smaller and more acidic than other types. Conventional pear cider comes from a sweeter variety.

I think they’ll get by using the old perry pear trees in people’s gardens and farms all over Herefordshire that haven’t been used for perry for years.
