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.

    Still waiting for fruit…

    I ordered 6-7 ft. Bosc Pear tree in May of 2020. Now it is 2023, and I have yet to see a single pear. As a matter of fact, it didn’t even have any flowers on it this past Spring. The tree I was sent also has a crooked trunk. This was the second one they sent me because the first one never came out of dormancy. So, in the ad, it says it can fruit in one year. It has been 3 years now and still no fruit. I am disappointed that it hasn’t done much. We DO fertilize it, water it, and IS growing, however, I wonder when it will begin fruiting! We are in Wisconsin in zone 5b. We STILL have it staked because of the trunk not being straight, hoping that will help some. I also have a “Luscious “ Pear tree (also 6-7 ft) that we bought at the same time. The first year after planting we had 8 tiny little pears that never ripened and eventually fell off. Second and third year, NOTHING. What is up with these pear trees??? Will they ever bear fruit???
