About The D'Anjou Pear Tree :
The D'Anjou Pear is a large pear. The flesh is white with abundant juice and a sweet brisk flavor. It is a naturally sweet pear, light green in color with a yellow tinge when ripe. Anjou pears have exceptional keeping qualities.

The best flavor is realized when stored 1-2 months.

The tree is very hardy, large and highly productive. The D'Anjou does not change color as it ripens. Requires cross pollination with Bartlett or any other pear with the same bloom date.

This was an old French variety originally called Beurre' d' Anjou. It has been grown in the USA since about 1900. It ripens after Bartlett (Mid August).

It accounts for 16% plus of US pear production. Grows best in Zones 4 to 9
