Harrow Delight European Pear

Pyrus communis Early Summer. Bartlett x Purdue 80-51 (Early Sweet x Old Home). HA Quamme, Harrow, Ontario, 1982.

Medium-sized fruit is yellow-green with a red blush. Sweet juicy white flesh is smooth with no detectable grit. Ripens a few weeks before its parent Bartlett. Uncommonly productive: you may need to thin fruit to prevent snapping limbs. Bred for hardiness and strong resistance to fireblight. This is its first appearance in our catalog! Z4. Maine Grown.

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.
