Grow the best varieties of sweet, delicious pears from August through October.
These four popular varieties were grafted together on a single trunk. This compact tree takes little space and produces an enormous amount of fruit. Your 4-in-1 Pear is a hardy tree that's even self pollinating.
These are the same varieties sent in gift baskets and mail order. But what really makes them so much better than supermarket pears is the time that they ripen on the branch.
So instead of waiting for a $40 gift box at Christmas, you can pick your own juicy, sweet pears at their peak of perfection. And you will enjoy them for months.
The most fun is anticipating the next variety coming in. Every few weeks you get to enjoy a new taste.
Shaped like a true pear with its rounded bell bottom, the Bartlett is sweet in aroma as well as taste. It will turn from light green to completely yellow in color when ripe. With the classic pear flavor, this large fruit has a soft, delicious and juicy flesh.
Taking its name from the french word for butter, the Beurre d'Anjou has a white, buttery flesh that is sweet, juicy and rich in flavor. An excellent dessert pear, it holds up well when refrigerated. Commonly used to make fresh pear juice, sweet sauces and jams.
With a distinctive look and taste all its own, the Bosc is a pear in a class by itself. From its cinnamon brown skin to its sweet and spicy flavor, the Bosc offers a nice change of pace from the traditional pear.
As its name implies, the surecrop is a reliable producer with a long harvest yielding many delicious pears throughout the season. A cold hardy pear with taste and texture qualities similar to the Bartlett, the yellow skinned Surecrop delivers a firm and juicy fruit that tastes great right off the tree and is limited only by your imagination in the kitchen.
You get a solid, well developed tree that is ready to produce the first season.
For an amazing backyard orchard, you can add the 4 in 1 Apple tree and the 4 in 1 Cherry tree.
