Pears are the long-lived giants of the fruit tree world. Pears are self-unfruitful, so require another variety nearby for pollination.
Bartlett – The most highly cultivated pear in Ontario, for good reason; it’s very productive and has delectable flavour.
Doyenne du Comice – An old French variety considered one of the finest pears for fresh eating. Fruit has pale yellow flesh and yellow skin; needs to be ripened off the tree for about a month.
Red Clapp’s Favourite – A mutation of the classic Clapp’s pear produced this delicious red-skinned variety with melting, juicy flesh.
