A Buttery Pear with a Sweet Punch

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.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for 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.

Planting & Care

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.

my tree did not bear fruit for the first time in many years can you tell me why ?
james t on Jul 19, 2015
There are several reasons:
first did your tree bloom this year ?
did you have a late frost?
you may not have enough pollinators in your area due to pesticides
when was the last time your tree was pruned ?
when was the last time it was fertilized and with what fertilizer?
how old is the tree ?
has fruit production dwindled over the years?
The answers to these questions will help figure out why your tree failed to produce
Do you need to net the trees when the fruit is near rippening? And what is the largest diameter trunk you sell of the D'Anjou ?
j b on May 22, 2015
