Enjoy a seasonal bounty of fresh, delicious pears when you plant our Comice Pear Tree (Pyrus ‘Comice’). Dubbed the ‘Connoisseur’s Pear,’ the Comice has been a generational favorite among growers and foodies, beloved for its deliciousness as a fresh-eating pear as well as its delightful culinary potential.
As winter turns to spring, watch in amazement as the tree puts on a spectacle for you (and passersby) to enjoy. It comes to life with pristine white blooms that attract butterflies and other pollinators who follow its subtle fragrance instinctively.
Comice pears are sweet and juicy with a firm texture that gives you that classic pear “snap” with every bite. The skin of the pear is light green and has a faint rosy blush that lets you know it was picked at the peak of perfection.
First introduced in the 1800s in France and quickly sealed its reputation as being a fantastic pear to grow. Comice is a traditional pear found in gift baskets during the Holidays.
How to Use Comice Pear Tree In The LandscapeEuropean Pears are beautiful, ornamental trees that also bear superior fruit. Whether you choose to grow just one in your front yard for its natural landscape-enhancing beauty, or several lining your driveway, you’ll enjoy its year-round accents.
Plant several as a hedgerow for privacy and property definition, or in the backyard for a small orchard. Great as a small-statured shade tree over your patio and seating areas, or as a shaded anchor to larger garden beds. These are fantastic anywhere they are planted.
A beautiful specimen tree, Comice needs a pollinator to produce the best yield receiving the best pollination in a group of other suitable pears. If you are short on space, try this high-density planting trick in our Garden Blog!
The crunch of this pear and the firmness of its flesh make it ideal for baking, adding to a pear crisp, and baking pies. Its flesh also makes it a great pear for canning, letting you preserve some of your harvest for enjoyment later on in the year.
#ProPlantTips For CareHardy in USDA growing zones 4-9, these are full sun trees and do best with morning sun and at least 6 hours of direct sunlight a day. Adaptable to a range of conditions, this pear tree is easy to love and easy on the eyes too.
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.
Preferring rich, well-drained soil and a thick layer of mulch over the root systems surface for moisture retention and insulation from heat and cold.
