Any pear trees producing good pears in this area?

I have been growing pears for may years, and can grow nice big pears but have never gotten a delicious pear until this year, which was from from a pear tree planted from a seed many years ago. Most pears have to be picked green and put in a refrigerator a few days to ripen. A few varieties ripen on the tree, but finding one that is very hardy and ripens on the tree, or ripens after being chilled in the refrigerator is difficult. My pear ripens late (mid late October), on the tree. So, does anyone know of a pear producing delicious fruit in this area and what is the variety?
