Bartlett Pear

  • Pyrus communis 'Bartlett'


    3-4 foot tall, bareroot.


    At maturity the Bartlett Pear tree can reach 20 feet in height, growing quickly at a rate of 24" per year.  Full sun is ideal while in soils that are slightly acidic, deep, heavy, and moist (but well-drained).  Other soil types are tolerated, but may result in a lighter crop.  It is sensitive to salt, and not drought-tolerant.  The Bartlett produces fruit even on young trees in late summer.
