Plant a pear tree in your yard, and delight in having your own convenient resource for nutritious, flavorful snacks that are more affordable than those you’ll find at the grocery store. If you’re new to growing your own fruit, a pear tree is a great start. The pear trees we offer fall into two categories: European pear trees produce fruit that is smooth and firm, sweet, juicy with the traditional pear-shape or “pyriform”. These pear trees are native to the more mild regions of Europe, like France, where many cultivated pear varieties are bred. Asian pear trees produce unique, Eastern-indigenous fruits that feature the juicy white flesh of a classic pear, but with the round shape and crisp, firm texture of an apple. Both types of pear tree feature delicate blossoms in the spring and vibrant foliage in the fall, adding seasonal beauty to your landscape. Choose from classic varieties you’re familiar with, like Bartlett and Bosc, or opt for red-skinned variations to add visual appeal from garden to table.
