The Magness European Pear Tree (Pyrus communis 'Magness') is one of the best on the market. Not only can you eat these pears fresh, but they are fantastic for both cooking or canning. This variety ripens a little later than most, but the fruit is well worth the wait!

The medium-to-large fruit of the Magness European Pear has a slightly tough skin in a lovely bronze with an overlay of red and some russeting and blush when ripe. Highly perfumed and with thicker skin that resists bumps and bruising, this stores well and acts as a great layer of protection against insects!

We recommend picking your Magness European Pears a week or two before they're ripe, then let them ripen in your fridge or on your counter. Be patient, and you will enjoy the soft, juicy fruit that has less grit than most varieties and will literally melt in your mouth.

You will inhale the fragrant pear aroma with each bite. And if you have more than you can use, pop them in the refrigerator where they will last for 1-2 months.

Because the Magness European Pear does not produce enough pollen, so you will need to plant another pear tree nearby, but almost all other varieties of pear will work as a pollinator for a large, delectable crop.

How to Use Magness European Pear Tree In The Landscape

European Pears are beautiful, ornamental trees that also bear superior fruit. Whether you choose to grow just one in your front yard for its bountiful white fragrant blooms and lush green foliage. Try several fruiting pears lining your driveway, and you’ll enjoy year-round accents & luscious fruit.

Plant several as a hedgerow for privacy and property definition, or in the backyard in a home orchard. By planting with multiple Pear varieties, you’ll achieve greater pollination of your Magness!

Great as a lush shade tree over your patio and seating areas, or as a shaded anchor to larger garden beds. These are fantastic anywhere they are planted!

#ProPlantTips For Care

Fruit trees require full sun for the most vigorous growth and best harvest. Provide at least 6 hours of sunlight per day, favoring the drying power of the morning sun. Growing amazingly in USDA growing zones 5 through 9, Magness is highly resistant to fire blight.

Preferring rich, loamy, well-drained soil, Magness isn’t particular on soil type. Be sure to provide a good layer of mulch over your root system for moisture consistency and insulation from heat and cold.

Provide ample water for your young tree while it becomes established, not allowing it to dry out between waterings. Water when fruiting to protect your investment and provide supplemental watering in times of need.

Prune to control your tree’s size, maintain an open canopy for both sunlight and airflow. Head over to our Garden Blog for more Fruit Tree Planting, Fruit Tree Pruning and Fruit Tree Care tips and tricks can be found!
