Grow A Lifetime of Maintenance-Free Fruit From One Tree

Grow the world's most popular pear in your own backyard!

I love pears... but can't stand to buy them from the supermarket.

Organically grown pears are rarely offered in my area... and when they do arrive, they're several weeks old and don't look appetizing.

The non-organic pears are sprayed with an insecticide that is difficult to wash off completely. This coating is meant to withstand rain storms.

Unfortunately, no matter how well you wash your fruit, some of these chemicals get ingested by you and your family.

Now you can grow your own pears and not have to worry about what you're eating. The biggest benefit is the taste that comes when your pears are naturally tree-ripened... rather than being picked early and refrigerated.

The Bartlett is so popular because of its sweet, juicy taste. Each year your tree provides bushels of pears that are great for canning, cooking and snacking.

You can pick this delicious fruit in late summer. When ripe, these pears are so sweet that they fill your yard with a delicious aroma.

A cold- hardy tree that is self-fertile and adaptable to a wide range of soil conditions. Plant several to ensure you get plenty of large pears.

These well branched Bartlett Pear trees will sell out, so we recommend that you order yours today.

Bartlett Pear Tree Pollination

Bartlett Pear Trees are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional pollinator will drastically increase the size of your crop. Below are the most effective pollinators we have chosen for your area...

Love my Pear
I bought this tree a year and a half ago. It arrived in perfect condition and I followed the planting directions. The first summer it grew very tall and had beautiful leaves. Over the winter I pruned it because I did not want it to grow too tall. This spring it actually bloomed wonderful white flowers! Now she is full of gorgeous leaves and is the best looking tree in my yard. I can't wait to taste her pears!

Happy customer
Arrived in great shape. It sat in that pot for about a week before I planted it, but never drooped. We went through a hot spell about 3 weeks after I planted it and the tree lost a few leaves. It looks like it has bounced back, but I have yet to see any growth. Looking forward to next Summer!

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Bartlett Pear Tree

Bartlett Pear Tree Planting Diretions

The Bartlett pear tree (Pyrus ‘Bartlett’) is a medium size pear tree, reaching an overall size of 15-20 feet tall/wide, it can be kept pruned to a smaller size however for ease of picking. The sweet, juicy fruit of the Bartlett is one of the most popular among the pear trees. Growing in zones 5-7, it is cold tolerant down to -10 degrees, but needs 800 chill hours, so it will not produce well in warmer climates. Bartlett pears are self fertile, so you only need one to produce fruit, but you will get more fruit with the addition of another pear tree.

Location: Give your pear tree a location that features full sun and well-draining soil. Choose a bright, sheltered location, preferably with southern exposure.

Planting Instructions (in ground):
1) Dig a hole three times the size and just as deep as the root ball. You want to be careful that the tree does not settle too low in the soil.
2) After the hole is dug, carefully loosen and unwind any roots as necessary.
3) Plant the tree so that the roots are spread in the hole and the entire root ball is covered with soil.
4) Fill in the hole completely and gently remove air pockets that may have formed by tamping down with a spade.
5) Water the tree thoroughly after the tree has been planted.

Watering: Water your pear tree as necessary giving it at least 1 or 2 inches of water once a week. When the weather gets hot and dry during the peak of summer, increase the amount of water to maintain proper hydration and moisture. Do not water the pear tree after the first frost in the fall. You should resume watering once the last frost has past.

Pruning: When pruning, it’s important to trim the pear tree’s central leader to promote an upright position. If there are any competing branches present, remove them so that multiple leaders do not form. Maintain the tree’s natural shape by pruning large, lateral branches. Dead, dying or wilted branches should always be removed to help the Pear Tree focus its energy on growing healthy and producing an abundance of fruit.

*Tip* It’s always good to sterilize your cutting tool(s) with rubbing alcohol to ensure a clean cut that no pathogens can get into.

Pests: Pear trees are susceptible to insects such as maggots, moths, scale and aphids. To prevent infestation of these and other pests, treat with an insecticide in the early spring. Signs of infestation to be watchful for include yellowing or browning of foliage, rotted or eaten fruit and nibbled leaves. Spray the tree with the insecticide according to the directions on the label.

*Harvest pears at the end of the growing season (October-November). Watch the fruit regularly, as it will require two to three weeks to harden before harvest.
*Pick pears when they have reached full color and size and are firm to the touch. Check the tree daily and pick fruit every two to three days until your harvest is complete.

What backyard orchard is complete without a pear tree? The Bartlett was my first tree to produce fruit in the garden and has been consistent in higher yields each year. This is the only tree which I cannot imagine would benefit in production from planting another pear tree.

Joseph R on Aug 19, 2015

Bartlett pear was planted last year yet no flowers the tree has healthy looking leaves but no flower or sight of fruit?

BEST ANSWER: There could be a number of reasons, sometimes it could take 4-5 years in order to produce. Not enough water, drought stress could be a reason. Too much nitrogen.
