d’anjou pear

Pyrus Communis ‘D’Anjou’

D'Anjou pear tree
D’Anjou has been a favorite pear variety for many years. It has an aromatic flesh and citrus-like sweet flavor. Expect beautiful, creamy white flowers in mid spring that attract pollinators. These trees produce a heavy crop – the fruit is a lime green color and triangular shape. These pears are perfect for eating, cooking, baking, and making cider.

D’Anjou is partially self-pollinating and grows to a mature height of 10 to 15 feet. For the largest yields, though, it is recommended to cross pollinate with Bosc, Bartlett or Comice.

Height: 10′ – 15′

Width: 10′ – 15′

Exposure: Full sun is best.

Watering and soil: Moist, well drained soil – loam or sand. Water well while establishing.

Fertilizer: Use a well balanced fertilizer or slow release formula.

Pruning: Pear require annual pruning to keep them healthy, strong, and bountiful. They are excellent fruit trees for espalier training too. To receive maximum sunlight and good air circulation, train these trees to an open center shape.
