Migo is a slender pyriform pear with a pale green-yellow skin and white flesh. The fruit can be eaten in a crisp or softening condition. Flavour is not strong, but there is slight acidity and good sweetness which adds to the appeal of this variety: a very pleasant, crisp-eating pear. It is good to eat when crisp and appears to maintain a firm texture without softening, unlike Conference or Concorde. The skin is thin and without much russett, so is quite acceptable to eat.
Migo is the marketing name of a new pear variety called Cepuna. Cepuna is very similar to Conference in many respects, but has a smoother skin, less russetting and an improved storage performance.
