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.
