Orient PearPyrus communis
This hybrid European pear cultivar is known for its intense beauty and heavy annual crops. The yellow fruit has juicy, melting, creamy flesh with a mild flavor—excellent for canning, desserts, salads and fresh eating. The tree typically produces ripe fruit in mid-August or mid-September.
The Orient pear is available in standard and dwarf sizes and requires cross-pollination with Bartlett or another European pear variety (excluding Kieffer). See our Fruit Tree Spacing Guide for more specifics.
