Also known as Williams’ pear in Europe, the Bartlett is one of the most popular pears in the world. Its origins could go as far back as the late 1400s, making this amazing tree a classic favorite. Its exceptional fruit and overall heartiness makes it a favorite for experienced gardeners and amateurs alike.
Nothing quite compares to the Bartlett Pear. Produced from a deciduous tree with ornamental features, the Bartlett Pear (Pyrus communis ‘Bartlett’) is delicious, juicy, and oh-so-sweet.
Clusters of tiny white blossoms emerge from the Bartlett Pear tree during early spring! Fragrant and buzzing with bees and aflutter with butterflies, you may even see a hummingbird or two!
Bartlett Pears grow to have a rounded bell shape and green skin that turns golden yellow as it ripens. The white flesh holds juicy sweetness and is a crisp favorite to use for cooking and baking. Of course, it is perfect for fresh eating too!
How exciting to pluck one of the delicious pears from your very own tree! You’ll know exactly what went into (and onto) the fruit you’re providing for your family! Plus, there’s nothing quite like a fresh pear, sun-ripened and straight off the branch! That grocery store fruit just can’t hold a candle to it!
How to Use Bartlett Pear Tree In The Landscape Because this European Pear variety is considered only self-fruitful when grown in zone 9 on the coast of CA, you’ll get a larger harvest if you plant with another of Bartlett’s cross pollinators nearby so most of us will need to plant one of the suggested pollinators for this plant like Bosc Comice, Warren, D’Anjou, Hosui, Korean Giant, Shinshiki, or Red Clapp’s Favorite.
The Bartlett pear is a beautiful tree with exceptional fruit. The fruit keeps well in storage and is prized for use in preserves, tarts and other dishes. Of course, it also tastes great right off the tree!
Smaller size means about any yard, orchard or courtyard has room for a Bartlett Pear! Use as a specimen plant in your front landscaping for a dual-purpose flowering tree. No room for Bartlett and one of its pollinators? Try this high-density planting trick in our Garden Blog!
Add to an existing landscape or orchard easily because Bartlett is pruned smaller as needed. Keep it short for easy harvest and to fit into any established garden.
Create a hedgerow of fruit trees for privacy, screening and property definition by planting this and other smaller trees in a row!
When left to grow to full height, Bartlett creates fantastic shade for your patio, seating areas and garden beds!
#ProPlantTips For CareBartlett Pear trees are vigorously growing and precocious, meaning you won’t have to wait long for your first harvest. The tree also is generally long-lived.
Fruit trees require full sun for the most vigorous growth and best harvest. Provide at least 6 hours of sunlight per day, favoring the drying power of the morning sun. Hardy in USDA growing zones 4 through 9, these are cold and heat-hardy trees!
Be sure to plant trees in rich, fertile well-drained soil, be sure to add a generous layer of mulch to help retain soil moisture as well as insulate the root system from heat and chill.
Provide ample water for your young tree while it becomes established, not allowing it to dry out between waterings. Then reduce your watering to moderate, yet consistent moisture during the heat of summer and when fruiting. While drought-tolerant, it’s best to protect your investment by providing supplemental watering in times of need.
Situate in an area that is protected from frost pockets and with good air circulation. Prune to keep an open canopy so that both sunlight and airflow reach the interior. Head over to our Garden Blog for more Fruit Tree Planting, Fruit Tree Pruning and Fruit Tree Care tips and tricks can be found!
