Pam's Picks
D'Anjou's smaller stature makes it easy to pick the huge bounty of buttery sweet pears this tree delivers. It's compact enough to put into a large container if you are lacking for garden space. Fragrant white blossoms kick off the season, but the real party begins in early fall when flavorful pears will get you thinking about baking cobblers and jams.

Beurre d’Anjou takes its name from the French word for butter, and this full-bodied pear has a creamy, aromatic and juicy texture that some swear is almost buttery. The Beurre d'Anjou Pear has luscious white flesh, and is especially tasty eaten ripe right off the tree. 

It also has a very high juice content, so it’s ideal for juicing. Don’t hesitate to whip up a breezy pear martini on a warm summer day. The d’Anjou Pear tree is cold hardy, drought resistant and thrives in partial to full sun. Pear blossoms will appear in April and blanket your d’Anjou Pear tree in a luxuriant layer of fragrant creamy white flowers. 

Practical, attractive and versatile, this tree averages a mature height of about 10-15 feet--so they fit nicely into almost any size garden. They can even be container-grown if desired. As an added benefit, harvesting our d’Anjou pears will be almost trouble-free due to the smaller size of the tree. No more climbing on dangerous ladders to reach the fruit at the top. 

Don’t let the slight stature of this tree fool you, as the pear fruit it bears is quite large. The skin will be light green in color and develop a yellow blush around September when it is ripe. Cross-pollination by a different pear tree is required for Beurre d’Anjou to set fruit, so buy one of our bountiful Bartlett Pear trees and plant nearby. 

If you just want a single pear tree for ornamental purposes only, the d’Anjou is a great choice because it is a prolific bloomer and attracts bees, butterflies and birds like crazy. Store your pears in a cool dry place for 1-2 months to bring out the deepest flavor, and then chill in the fridge for an hour before you eat it. 

The d’Anjou is an excellent dessert pear, and holds up well to baking, cooking and canning. It happens to make an outstanding and yummy pear crisp or cobbler. 

D’Anjou Pear trees from our nursery always have well-developed root systems because they remain in the nursery longer than most other growers. This way we guarantee you will enjoy growth and beauty right away.

You can depend on us to deliver first-rate quality plants. Our high standards ensure your growing success. Order your Beurre d’Anjou Pear tree today, while supplies last.

It's Easy to Plant your D'Anjou Pear


Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your D'Anjou Pear.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.



Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your D'Anjou Pear gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your D'Anjou Pear again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

Best Answer: The D'anjou Pear is not recommended for the cold temperatures in MN. You would want something more cold tolerant like the Kieffer Pear.

you may not have enough pollinators in your area due to pesticides
when was the last time your tree was pruned ?

Will my Trees and Shrubs Look Like the Photographs?

Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos.

Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.

Bare Root trees are shipped without dirt or any green foliage showing. Some customers who have never planted bare root before, think that they received a "dead stick" with roots. These dormant trees are basically sleeping over the winter as most trees do. Because of their hibernation-like stage, this is a great way to transplant these trees. Since a bare root tree lacks foliage, they need very little moisture.


Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You

Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
