Deer Resistant Icon

Plant Type: Fruit Trees

Early May blooming. Large, yellow fruit is harvested mid-September. Tender, juicy flesh is good for fresh eating and canning. Should be picked 1 week before ripe and allowed to ripen in a cool place. Very hardy. Requires pollination. The yellow fruit is displayed in early fall, and are excellent for making jams and jellies but which can be messy if allowed to drop on the lawn or walkways.

 


Growing & Maintenance Tips:

Almost any pear will pollinate any other pear, provided the 2 bloom at the same time. They should be planted within 40-50 feet of each other. Bees are not partial to pear blossoms. The nectar is low in sugar content and the trees normally blossom early in the season when it is too cool or wet for bees to fly. Very winter hardy.
