`Platonivs'ka' has been released as a new autumn pear cultivar that combines scab (Venturia pirina Aderh.) resistance and cold hardiness under Ukrainian climate and soil conditions, selected from a cross of `Hybrid 1931' (`Oleksandrivka' × `Dekanka du Comice') × Beurré Bosk. The trees grow vigorously, are adequately winter-hardy, and resistant to both leaf and fruit scab. Very good tree productivity has been observed when `Platonivs'ka was grafted on Limonska Oleksandrivka, Wild Forest Pear, Quince A, or BA-29 rootstocks. The fruit attains its picking ripeness between 10 and 20 Sept. (2 weeks after `Bartlett') and eating ripeness between the beginning and end of October in Ukraine. Its storage life at 0 to 2C lasts until the end of January. The average weight per fruit ranges between 180 and 200 g (70–75 mm in diameter). The fruit eating quality is excellent; its juicy and pleasant sugar/acid ratio makes it a very good dessert pear. Fruits are ovatepyriform in shape. Their skin color is light grayish-green and their finish is glossy at harvest. Flesh texture is moderately find and buttery. At harvest, grit cells are small and evenly distributed in the flesh and they become inconspicuous when the fruit is held at 20C for a week. `Platonivs'ka' is recommended for both home and commercial orchards.
