Shenandoah Pear Tree


Shenandoah pear is a European pear variety released by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and The Ohio State University in 2003. The fruit has spicy aromatic flavor, long storage life, and large fruit size. The skin color at harvest time is light green with red blush. The tree has moderate resistance to fire blight. Grows well in hardiness zones 5 to 8.

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.
