Description

Productive tree yields aromatic fruit. Hardiness keeps it going where other pear trees give out. The fruit’s smooth, brilliant-red skin surrounds a soft, juicy flesh with a sweet, mild flavor. Excellent keeper. Flavor peaks about 2 months after harvest. Color improves in storage. Originates from Medford, Oregon in the early 1950s. Ripens in September. Pollinator required: Choose another pear variety, like Bartlett, Beurre Bosc or Starking® Delicious™.

Healthy Tree, but no fruit
Thus far, my Red Anjou Pear Tree has not produced any fruit yet. It is too young to produce fruit....perhaps in a couple of years. The tree appears very healthy..

Good, Strong stock
This tree was planted last spring and survived a sporadic winter season. It came back this spring with lush new growth. Looking forward to some delicious fruit next season.
