Why "redder" isn't always "better".
Grandpa often bucks this trend seen in the produce department.

Pear---- Asian Varieties

Pears can be more easily grown than other fruits.  They are typically not susceptible to scab so will require little protection from that fungus and most others.  Pear psylla is a common insect that can infest pears, but usually is too difficult to control in backyard plantings--- do worry about it too much--- just try to control other common insect pests.  Fireblight is the most common pear disease and if it is a concern to you, focus on fire blight resistant varieties.  Grandpa has found that many of the Asian pear varieties seem to be easier to grow and more disease free.

All varieties of Pear should be able to be shipped to all states except HI.  We cannot ship any stock to CANADA or outside the USA.

Note:  Planting a variety outside of its normal Hardiness Zone will void our normal replacement policy.  Please be careful in your selections!
