Below is a list of pear trees that we offer. European-type pears are designated with an (E) and Asian-type pears with an (A). Asian pears are typically round in shape (similar to apples) and have russet coats. Most Asian pears require another pear (Asian or European) for good pollination. European pears can be self-fertile, but unless noted below, it is recommended that customers have at least two different pear trees to pollinate one another. All pears are grafted onto semi-dwarf rootstock, OHxF97.
Bartlett (E) is a large, yellow pear of excellent quality. It is a favorite for canning and eating. It is a heavy-bearer, but is susceptible to fireblight. It ripens in late August and early September. (excellent pollinator and self-fertile)

The texture is firm and its flavor is sweet. It is remarkably disease resistant and bears early. It ripens in late October. (excellent pollinator and self-fertile)
