Pyrus - Pears

Beautiful in bloom, handsome in full leaf, heavy with luscious pears, attractive in fall, picturesque in winter, pear trees are very rewarding additions to the landscape across the seasons. Widely popular for their sweet fruits, they require regular and careful pruning and fruit thinning, but the extra work pays off in bountiful, juicy, homegrown pears.
