Gorham European Pear


Gorham European Pear

Pyrus communis Early Fall. Bartlett x Josephine de Malines. New York Stn, Geneva, NY, 1923.

Dessert pear of excellent quality. Smooth, dense, juicy and sweet. Large yellow fruit, often partly or entirely russeted, ripens a week or two later than Bartlett, which it resembles in size and shape. Stores well. Introduced to us by Fedco grower John Meader who wrote in the note he included with the fruit, “I had a dozen or so high up in the tree that were better specimens but the wind dropped them while I was unaware, and a flock of turkeys ate the drops—it’s always something.”

Upright vigorous productive (tall!) tree. Quite hardy. Z3/4. Maine Grown. (2½-6' bare-root trees)

Additional Information

European Pears

Although some pears appear to be self-pollinating, we recommend a second variety for pollination. Bloom dates for all varieties are similar. Plant 15–20' apart.

For 2023, European Pears and Perry Pears are on OHxF97 or a similar rootstock, and Asian Pears are on OHxF97 or Pyrus betulaefolia rootstock. These rootstocks are subject to change based on availability and we are unable to accommodate pear rootstock requests.
