Pollinator required to bear fruit

A classic keeping pear.

This variety strikes all the right chords: it’s sweet, dripping with juice and delicious to eat in any form. It’s cold-hardy, a strong grower and early bearer, plus the fruit will store for up to 7 months. A great performer! The pears are bright lime-green and very firm during the season, developing a tinge of yellow as they ripen. The flesh has a fine, smooth texture and gentle sweetness. Introduced to America in 1842. Ripens in late September.

Pollinator required: Choose Bartlett, Beurre Bosc or Starking® Delicious™.

    This angou pear tree is looking healthy and growing strong. Looking forward to pears in the future.

    I purchased this tree in 2018 as a bare root standard tree of a 5/8″ caliper. I potted it for six months in Miracle grow and kept it well watered in a protected area next to my home before planting it in the fall (had a bad drought that summer). It has grown well and is now about 12′ tall with a sturdy 2″ trunk. It bloomed in the very top this year for the first time, and made a few fruits – that later shriveled and fell off once it began leafing and branching profusely again this year. I expect it will produce a few fruits next year – right on par with what I have seen from some of other varieties of slightly older young pear trees I have growing near it. So far, it has required very little care other than the wire fencing protection from deer – which I have to use to protect all my fruit trees.

    Planted last year alive and growing. May give higher rating in future no fruit yet

  4. Sam Parsons

    Arrived as a virtual stick. into 2nd year and still very little growth. Maybe Im expecting too much

  5. Larry Hume

    The pears I bought from Starking, Red Anjou are 2 yrs old and are doing well, with a few fruit set.


    The Anjou pear I received from Stark Brothers last year is doing great. While I’m looking forward to having pears in the coming years, the tree is well shaped and is a beautiful ornamental at this time.
