Exceptional Bosc Pear Flavor and Satisfying Crunch
- Delicious Fruit
- Late Season Producer
- Firm Flesh for Baking
If you're looking to add a late-season pear to your orchard, then look no further than our Bosc Pear Tree (Pyrus 'Bosc'). This fragrant pear is a semi-dwarf that yields excellent fruit late in the season, making it a nice addition to other pears or seasonal fruits that bear fruit early or mid-season.
Plant an upright Bosc Pear in a sunny spot in the backyard or a side yard to enjoy its colorful springtime show of flowers. The lovely display of ripening pears will brighten up your landscape. Once your Bosc Pear begins to bear fruit, September harvest season can't come soon enough for you.
Bosc is a fast favorite among pear lovers and has been for years, which is why it is one of the world's most popular pears. This one-of-a-kind pear provides exceptionally delicious flavor and a beautiful presentation, with a long, tapered neck and dark russet skin.
Enjoy the Bosc Pear right off the tree, biting into its crunchy, crispy, juicy flesh for a late harvest treat. The spicy and sweet flavor develops early and is unique to the Bosc.
The flesh of this pear is firmer than other pears, which is why it's a cook's choice for baking and dessert-making. Bake it whole, drizzled in glaze, or slice it for a pear crisp that's out of this world. Fresh eating is also one of the best uses of the Bosc. Try it in green salads and as the perfect complement to gourmet cheese plates.
Bosc Pear is also a great addition to a healthy diet. It is a good source of vitamin C and is loaded with dietary fiber.
When you plant the Bosc Pear, you won't wait long to start harvesting bushels of healthy, deliciously crisp pears. Fruiting time for this semi-dwarf pear tree is just three to five years. Remember, buying larger container sizes gives you a tremendous head start on fruiting.
True pear-lovers know that the Bosc Pear is in a class of its own. Add these superior pears to your yard today!
