Tiny treasures from one of the oldest American varieties.

One of the earliest American pears from the mid-1700s. Tiny but tasty fruits with a slight blush, and very firm flesh. Ideal for baking, canning, and poaching.
2 year old bare-root trees from our farm partner, Full Circus Farm in Pine Plains, NY.
All of our pear trees are offered on OHxF 97 root stock. OHxF 97 leads to "standard" fruit tree size, 18-20 feet high, and is a vigorous, hardy root stock that boasts resistance to fire blight.

Choose a site in full sun, with relatively well-drained soil. Plant your tree as soon as possible after pick up, and soak the roots in water a few hours before planting. Dig a hole that will accommodate the roots when they are spread out, plus a little extra room. When planting, keep the tree perpendicular to the ground, and keep the graft a few inches above the soil. Spread the roots out and gently fill in will soil all around. Tamp the soil down and water in very well. Keep well-watered and mulched while young trees are getting established.
