Pear, Common Bartlett 1-0 (Pyrus communis ‘Bartlett’)
The Bartlett pear is easy to grow and will reward its owner with beautiful blossoms in the spring, large and luscious fruit in late summer, and a continuous crop for as much as 100 years. Blooming just before the leaves appear in the spring, with showy white flowers, this species will produce large, yellow fruit with smooth and juicy white flesh in late August or early September which is ideal for eating, canning and preserves. The Bartlett pear likes acidic, moist, well-drained soil. At a mature height of 12 to 20 feet and a spread of 10 to 20 feet. This tree performs best in zone 5 – 7, and full sun is the ideal condition for this tree, meaning it should get at least six hours of direct, unfiltered sunlight each day.
