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. Harvest 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.

still alive but now flowers of fruit
Though I have been pretty happy with bare root grapes and other small fruit this tree came as a bare root single cane or whip about 4 feet tall. It put on little growth in 2015. In 2016 it put on a lot of growth but in 2017 it did not flower or fruit. It also appears to be quite susceptible to pear scab which turns the leaves black despite using dormant applications of copper and a fungicide at first cover. I will give it one more year and if I don't see better results will remove and try a different variety. I have another pear, a Bartlett I bought potted locally doing very well with a large crop of pears.
