A Highly Productive Small Fan-Stil Pear
- Low Chill Hours
- Medium-Sized Crisp Fruit
- Fire-Blight Resistant
- Manageable Small Size
If you're looking for a reliable pear tree that is prized for its commercial value, look no further. The Fan-Stil Pear (Pyrus communis 'FAN-STIL') offers fruit that is delicious and produces a consistent number of pears!
The Fan-Stil Pear fruit is remarkable, and is the most fire-blight resistant pear tree. It's a smaller tree, so it won't take up your entire yard!
How do Fan-Stil pears compare to other varieties? These are medium-sized and bright yellow when ripe. They can often blush to red in the right sunny conditions. Their flesh is juicy, crisp, and sweet. This white meat makes the perfect midday snack or as a delightful dessert when poached. You can even add these to your pecan and goat cheese salad for a sweetness that will light up your taste buds.
The Fan-Stil Pear tree grows to the perfect height to make harvest easy with just a fruit picker or ladder in early fall. This variety shows a remarkable resistance to fire blight and requires a lower chill time of about 500 hours. The Fan-Stil Pear grows upright and evenly with shiny deep green leaves.
While not the largest pear variety, this self-fruitful variety produces a bountiful harvest year after year! Many commercial growers have transitioned to the Fan-Stil Pear and have stuck to this tree species since it bears heavily and is easy to care for. This is especially true in the Southern Seaboard area.
And, like other pear trees, this one blooms with delightful white blossoms with a bright floral scent. Pollinators love these fun and fluffy blooms.
To keep Fan-Stil Pear happy and healthy, provide it with a spot that is fully sunny. It adapts well to a wide range of soil types and prefers medium moisture. Once established, you can keep your pear tree healthy with fertilizer every couple of years. You can pinch the stem buds to help control the growth and encourage strong and even branching.
Plant your Fan-Stil Pear in your front yard, backyard, side yard, or wherever you have a bit of room. It will add early fall fruit to your fruit tree collection and provide your yard with a touch of shade.
A great choice for the home gardener that wants to enjoy plenty of pears: The Fan-Stil Pear will become your best friend for fantastic fruit! Order yours today.
