Beurre d’Anjou Pear Tree


Beurre d’Anjou is an old French pear variety. Fruit is light green and fine-textured. The flesh is mild and aromatic. Fruits are firm, juicy and develop excellent flavor during 4-8 weeks of storage. Considered more blight resistant than Bartlett. Can store for a very long time in cold storage.

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.
