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.
