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.


A rootstock controls a tree's size, how early it bears fruit, cold hardiness, and partly its disease resistance. Learn more about our specific rootstocks.
