Flemish Beauty Pear Tree


Flemish Beauty is one of the hardiest among the European pears (hardiness zone 4). It originates in Belgium and is a mid-season bloom pear variety. The fruit is sweet, yellow with red blushed skin and has high quality. The tree is very productive and vigorous, but it is susceptible to scab, fire blight, and scale. The fruit ripens in late September and early October.

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.
