Pears are the long-lived giants of the fruit tree world. Ours are on full-sized OHxF 97 rootstock. Pears are self-unfruitful, so require another variety nearby for pollination.
Anjou – A commercial variety that bears delicious, large pears that store well. Harvest in late October.
Bartlett – The most highly cultivated pear in Ontario, for good reason; it’s very productive and has delectable flavour.
Bonne Louise de Jersey – Very hardy & blight-resistant tree produces small, sweet fruit that keeps well. Good for the backyard producer.
Butirra Precoce Morettini – A sweet & juicy early-ripening pear that stores well. Yellow skin with red flush.
