Description

The Bartlett Pear is the nation's leading pear variety. Bright yellow fruit that is sweet, juicy and aromatic is outstanding for fresh eating. A self-pollinating plant, however a pollinator will help the tree bare better fruit. Bartlett Pears do not ripen properly on the tree so growers pick the fruit when it is mature but green. Harvest in mid-August. A semi-dwarf variety.
