Bartlett Pear Tree


Bartlett pear (a.k.a. Williams) was found as a wilding in Berkshire, England. Bartlett pear is very popular among growers because of its great adaptability to different climates, soils, and situations. Tree is medium in size, tall, pyriform, upright, and very productive. Blooms in mid-season. Susceptible to fire blight. Fruit is large, yellow, pink-blushed and has smooth, firm flesh suitable for fresh use and canning. Ripens at the end of August. Bartlett is a good pollinizer for most pears, but it is not compatible with Seckel and AC Harrow Crisp.

General Tree Height/Caliper: Most of our fruit trees (apple, peach, apricot, plum, pear, nectarine, quince, and cherry) are grafted/budded and are 4-6' tall with a caliper/diameter of about 1/4-3/4". Most have more than 5' height and 1/2" diameter. The other trees are seedlings, such as pawpaw, mulberry, persimmon, shade, berry, and flowering trees which range from 18-36" tall.

A rootstock primarily controls a tree's size and how early it bears fruit. Learn more about our specific rootstocks.
