The ornamental beauty of Luscious Pear (Pyrus 'Luscious') produces small to medium-sized, bright yellow Pears with a lovely red blush. The fruit is very juicy and scrumptiously sweet! A favored baking pear for both sweet and savory dishes, you'll have a great harvest in no time with this beautiful and adaptable tree!

To say that the Luscious Pear is a showstopper is an understatement! This beautiful tree announces the start of the season with huge clusters of early spring, and snow-white flowers to add to your property's curb appeal. Pollinators will arrive for the fragrant display to further add delight to this impressive tree!

With glossy green foliage and great size, this is a stunning specimen tree and the fantastic branching makes this a mighty tree in its own right when the winter limbs are dusted in snow. Be sure to plant outside your favorite window so you can watch the seasonal wardrobe change throughout the year!

When harvest time arrives each fall, count on it producing oodles of juicy pears, ready to pluck right from the tree. Fans of the Bartlett pear will love Luscious Pears, too. The Luscious is similar to the Bartlett but has an even more robust flavor intensity that the whole gang will appreciate.

The Lucious Pear does best with a second tree for cross-pollination. We recommend the Bartlett, Comice, Bosc, and D'Anjou.

How to Use Luscious Pear Tree In The Landscape

Fill your fruit bowl on the counter, make fresh jams and jellies, or impress guests with these dessert-quality pears in your favorite recipes, like caramelized pears served with pork roast.

Or delight your family when the smell of a pear crisp baking fills the house. Warm pear crisp will be a perfect finish to a brisk autumn day, setting a harvest mood at dinner time.

The spring blooms, summer foliage and fantastic fruit set of red-kissed golden gems make this a lovely edible ornamental tree! Plant one as a stand-out specimen plant or start your own orchard! As beautiful as they are, you'll want to plant two to create a stunning focal point.

The shade provided by this hefty tree is perfect for planting over your seating areas and patio where you can best enjoy those gorgeous white blossoms, bask in the cooling shade, or have healthy snacks just an arm's reach away!

#ProPlantTips For Care

A vigorous grower that appreciates full sun, this variety is considered a mid-size tree and prefers well-drained soil. It is extremely hardy and can thrive in conditions as low as negative 50 degrees Fahrenheit. Hardy in USDA growing zones 4 through 8, these are widely adaptable trees!

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.

Plant in a well-enriched, organically enhanced site that has loamy, well-drained soil. A generous layer of mulch helps retain soil moisture as well as insulate the root system from heat and chill.

Provide ample water, deeply saturating the root ball, especially for your young tree while it becomes established, not allowing it to dry out between waterings. Once established, you can reduce your watering to moderate, yet consistent moisture during the heat of summer and when fruiting. While somewhat drought-tolerant, it's best to protect your investment by providing supplemental watering in times of need.

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.

Keep it smaller for smaller yards with annual summer pruning. That way you'll have no problem accommodating Luscious and one or more of its pollinators! 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.

Luscious Pear trees are also disease resistant and resistant to blight. Even if your thumbs are "less than green", you'll find it easy to grow and maintain. Expect your Luscious Pear to begin bearing fruit two to three years after planting.
