Like the alma (apple) the körte (“KUHR-TE”) is cultivated widely and in several varieties in Hungary, most notably the vilmos körte (Williams or Bartlett pear, pronounce “VEELMOSH KUHR-TE”). Its widespread use for making pálinka (fruit brandy) is such that any pálinka made from pear is often called simply vilmos körte.

but honestly I prefer the fresh vilmoskörte like fruit 🙂
