The D'Anjou Pear is an ornamental tree with exceptional late-ripening fruit. D`Anjou Pear Tree (Pyrus communis 'D`Anjou') produces a large pear with vibrant, light-green color at its September harvest. Considered a high-producer, you'll enjoy having plenty of delicious pears to share when the fall harvest begins.
In early-mid Spring, creamy, white flowers are sure to draw the eye of passers-by and fragrant enough to also bring pollinators to your yard! Bees, butterflies and the occasional hummingbird will drop by for a visit! Try snipping a few branches in late winter to bring indoors to force for a treat in your vases!
It is with time that the superb nature of this pear is brought to fruition! With a sweet, brisk flavor, unlike any other pear you'll ever taste, it’s well worth the wait! D'Anjou pear will be a tantalizing treat for your tastebuds...but not when picked directly from your tree.
The versatility of this delicious fruit will also astound you. It’s great picked directly from the tree for use in various dishes before it is fully ripe. It also stores exceedingly well, making it a great choice as a gift for friends and neighbors, or just as a winter treat for your table!
The secret to this delectable winter pear is to pick it green and place it in storage. Storing for up to 6 months or more!
This is an outstanding choice for an attractive, smaller tree that will not only provide you with outstanding fruit but also a lovely appearance in your yard! Sized perfectly for yards of all sizes and shapes, you can even prune this tree smaller yet as needed.
Shorter statured means easy to harvest and easy placement into any part of your garden and tucking into already established landscapes and existing orchards of all sizes!
You could plant several in a side yard for a small orchard, or create a property defining hedgerow with other small fruit trees for fantastic privacy and screening!
Be sure to plant one within sight of a window to enjoy its seasonal display! From the gorgeous spring blooms, the fantastic shade of the glossy green leaves and luscious fruit that dangles from each branch.
Use as shade over patios and seating areas, that way you can bask beneath the limbs when they’re smothered in white flowers or picnicking beneath the fruit-laden branches. The shade makes for a lovely reading nook as well!
Requiring another Pear Tree for cross-pollination, we recommend the Bosc, Bartlett or Comice Pear trees. The size of this tree means it’s fantastic for having two trees easier! If you don’t have room for a second tree, try this high-density planting trick in our Garden Blog!
The great green pears of this pear variety have firm, juicy flesh and are as fantastic for fresh eating right off the tree as they are your other canning, preserving and baking recipes!
All fruit trees require full sun to do their best and stay the healthiest. Provide a site with at least 6 hours of direct sunlight a day for optimal fruiting and vigorous growth. Easy to grow, these are wonderfully adaptable.
Hardy in USDA growing zones 4-9, D'Anjou Pears are cold-hardy and drought-resistant! Plant in a site with very good air circulation and avoid pockets where frost can settle. Prune to maintain an open canopy to allow more air and sunlight into the interior of the tree.
Water regularly, making sure to provide supplemental watering when fruiting, during the heat of summer and during times of drought. While partly drought tolerant once established, it’s best to protect your investment with plenty of water in times of need. Young trees especially, require consistent moisture to become properly established during their first year.
For best results, fertilize your tree regularly with Dr. Earth Fruit Tree Fertilizer or a good organic, slow-release fertilizer. Add Nature Hills Root Booster while planting for a life-long symbiotic relationship with the tiny feeder roots.
Situate in an area that is protected from frost pockets and with good air circulation. Prune to keep an open canopy so that both sunlight and airflow reach the interior.
