Hardy, Early Spring Flowers, Edible Fruits, Fall Color, Fast Growth, Espalier, Shade Tree, Street Tree, Cold Tolerant, Adaptable, Bonsai This is the standard summer pear with early season yellow-green, white fleshed sweet and tender fruit. Great fresh or canned. A medium sized, upright growing tree to 30 feet tall, generally 8 to 18 feet in cultivation. Leaves are elliptic/ovate with acute tips, with finely serrate or entire margins, 2 to 4 inches in length. Flowers are about 1 inch in diameter with white petals, and similar to apple except for having longer pedicels. The inflorescence is corymbose, containing 5 to 7 flowers (also different from apple). As in apple, the fleshy edible portion is derived from hypanthium tissue. There are 5 central seed cavities, usually bearing 2 seeds each as in apple. The flesh contains grit cells (termed brachysclereids), which are thick-walled, lignified cells that give the characteristic European pear flesh texture. Pears are thinned to 1 to 2 fruit per spur, spaced 6 inches apart. Please note: These seeds have been cleaned from the fruit. However, they are a soft seed and the cleaning process leaves broken seeds that cannot be removed. This is taken into account when packing the seeds in order to give you the quantity ordered.
