Worry-free, spectacular pears!

So juicy, with a sub-acid flavor that’s mild and sweet. The fruit is large and resembles a Bartlett in shape and color, and stores well for up to 5 months. Developed by USDA horticulturist Richard Bell, his third blight-resistant pear. Ripens in September. Pollinator required: Choose Bartlett, Comice, Seckel or Anjou.

  1. Brandon B

    Planted late in spring planting season last year. Made it through winter well , leafing out nicely with some blooms. Growing great this year despite planting in hot weather last year. Seems to be hardy , happy with pear so far. Can’t wait for some delicious pears in the future

  2. Lazy But Not Crazy Lazy But Not Crazy

    Unfortunately the tree did not survive . I think the hot dry weather preceded by the terribly wet weather may have taken a toll.

  3. Susan Fox

    The pear tree arrived in good condition and is growing well!

  4. Jody Perkins

    Shenandoah Pear It’s really doing well! It weathered the heat and looks like it will be strong & hardy!

  5. Gary Grogan

    I received the pear tree and it had no feeder roots and the “tap root” was at a 90 degree angle about 4 inches from the graft. After rigorous pampering, the tree finally gave up. The lack of quality control certainly needs to be addressed.
