The Bartlett Pear tree is a fruiting tree that grows to heights of about 20′ and a spread of around 20′ at maturity. This tree grows at a fast rate, with height increases of more than 24″ per year. Grows in an oval shape, spreading wide.
Blooms just before the leaves appear in the spring, with showy white flowers. Produces large, yellow fruit with a smooth and juicy white flesh, ideal for eating, canning and preserves. When ripe, these pears are so sweet that they fill your yard with a delicious aroma. Bartlett Pears will keep for up to 3 months if stored properly, preferably in a refrigerator.
The Bartlett pear grows best in slightly acidic, deep, heavy, and moist, well-drained soil. Other soil types are tolerated, but the tree may produce a lighter crop. It is especially sensitive to salt and is not drought-tolerant. This tree begins to bear fruit while young and has been known to continue bearing for many decades.
Requires cross-pollination with Moonglow, Bosc or Honeysweet. Harvest times are typically in late August or early September. The Bartlett will require 800 chill hours.
