About Bartlett Pear:
Bartlett pears are very well liked by wildlife as well as eating out of hand. This pear tree will also pollinate itself making it easy to grow and produce fruit. Pear trees are very drought tolerant and generally easier to grow than apple trees. Very vigorous growth rates of up to 3-4’ per year. Note: Grafted Selection recommended if purchasing for human consumption as the taste can’t be relied upon from seedlings. Grafted Selections will also fruit 1-2 years sooner than non-grafted trees (seedlings.)
