The Grand-Daddy of All Pears!

If you are looking for a pear tree that will provide fruit, long after the other varieties have gone to sleep . . .
You will want to plant the Bosc Pear.

The fruit of this luscious tree is ready for harvest after the Autumn Equinox, giving it the nickname 'Winter Pear'. Its 'Fall Harvest' will add a special dimension to your landscape and properly cared for, this hardy tree will produce for up to 100-years.

Your Bosc Pear blooms in mid-April, filling your tree with lovely white blossoms and your senses with its' delicate fragrance. The fruit will develop abundantly and slowly over the summer; ready for harvest in late September.

The wonderful thing about the Bosc Pear is that it 'sweetens' early, even before the fruit begins to soften; this means that you can enjoy it, right off the tree.

The skin color won't change much during the ripening process but you can test the ripeness by simply pressing your thumb around the top of the pear, near the stem; if it gives just a little - the Bosc Pear is ripe. It will never become as soft as some other varieties and that's what makes it so special.

The Bosc Pear stands out for many reasons: Its fruit is quite large, with a rounded bottom - tapered middle - and long, slender neck, giving it a shape that sets it apart. The subtle gold undertone of its skin is covered with a cinnamon brown russeting which creates a dynamic visual appeal.

Your Bosc Pear will have a unique taste and texture; Slightly acidic and lightly spicy - Tantalizing your taste buds and bringing you back for more. The white flesh of the Bosc is firm but juicy, crunchy and yet tender . . . it is perfect for eating fresh and fabulous for cooking.

Try adding the Bosc Pear to salads, poaching it for desserts, or adding it to your fruit baskets as a focal point. You won't soon forget its' rich flavor - or its' buttery sweetness.

- Abundant Producer
- Large Fruit
- Provides Winter Fruit

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Bosc Pear

Step 1: Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Bosc 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 Bosc 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 Bosc Pear again after the transplant is complete.

like bosc pears seemed like a hardy fruit tree to grow in my zone (6)

We had a wonderful Bosc pear tree years ago when we lived in Bloomfield, NJ and loved it. One of our older fruit trees just died and this should fit in nicely.
Robert B on Apr 14, 2016
Like pear pies and preserves. I picked this one because the pictures are beautiful when it is in bloom.
sharon c on Apr 14, 2016
Because I love pears. This tree does not need a different pollinator to bear. I have two Bartlett pear trees and I hoping this will pollinate them when we have enough chill hours for them to bear at all.

Beki B on Sep 17, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Bosc, Moonglow and Anjou will all cross pollinate with a Bartlet
is this tree self-pollinating?
Betty Z on Jan 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: My tree was full of blossoms when I received it and now I have 9 pears on it. I do have two Bartlett pear trees but neither one has gotten blooms or leaves on it yet.
Is the bosc pear tree grow & yield fruit if container planted?
Torrie P on Apr 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Really don't see why it wouldn't. The only problem I can think of would be to find a container big enough to put it in. My tree was almost 6 foot tall when I received it. Hope this helps.
how many inches a year does it grow?
Robert C on May 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The Bosc Pear can grow 12"-24" per year.
Do you need two trees for it to produce fruit?
Jim M on Mar 7, 2017
Bosc pears require a pollinator of a different variety. I purchased a bartlett to go with my bosc. They are both great pears. Good luck!
Is the Bosc tree self pollinating?
Georgette B on Feb 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The reason I bought it was because it is self pollinating. I also have two Bartlett pear trees that the bosc is supposed to be a pollinator for.
Can another pear tree pollinate a Bosc pear tree?
Gerald T on Jan 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes the Bartlett or any other pear would be a good pollinator.
