Southern Bartlett Pear
Loads of juicy fruit on a tree that thrives in heat!
The Bartlett pear is the #1 pear in the entire world, but especially here in America. It is an easy grower and a prolific fruiter. Unfortunately, this great performance only happens in northern climes. Try growing this great fruit in Louisiana, Alabama or Florida and you get a whole lot of nothing.
The south finally has a pear that lives up to its northern brother with aplomb. The Southern Bartlett (Pyrus ‘Southern Bartlett’) is a beautiful tree that bears delicious fruit despite the heat and humidity. The extra big fruit is drip-down-your-chin juicy. The flesh isn’t hard or mealy either, considering how big the pears are. It is super soft and tender, almost melt-in-your-mouth.
Besides the fruit, it is a fantastic landscape tree with a sweet spreading shape. In places where the seasons are more often marked by the number of tourists coming and going than by the weather changes, Southern Bartlett also offers nice fall leaf color change by turning gorgeously orange about the same time the pumpkin lattes start popping up in the coffee shops.
These early fruiters are known for big fruit and plenty of it! They ripen August through September and pollinate with just about any other pear tree you have.
