Pear Red D'Anjou Tree yields lots of aromatic fruit. Hardiness keeps it going where other pear trees give out. The fruit’s smooth, brilliant-red skin surrounds a soft, juicy flesh with a sweet, mild flavor. Excellent keeper. Flavor peaks about 2 months after harvest. Color improves in storage. Originates from Medford, Oregon in the early 1950s. Harvest in September. More than one variety must be planted in order to facilitate best pollination and subsequent fruit production.
We suggest when planting your newly purchased Pear Red D'Anjou Tree that you dig a hole twice as wide as the root system but not deeper. Depending on the quality of your existing soil you may need to add a locally sourced compost or topsoil to the back-fill soil. We do not recommend using straight topsoil or compost as a back-fill soil because more times than not these products will retain entirely to much moisture and will cause the root system to rot. Adding compost or topsoil will help the young feeder roots of Pear Red D'Anjou Tree to spread through the loose, nutrient rich soil, much easier than if you used solely the existing soil which more times than not will be hard and compacted. The most common cause of plant death after transplanting is planting the new plant to deep. That is why we do not recommend planting in a hole any deeper than the soil line of the plant in the pot. A good rule is that you should still be able to see the soil the plant was grown in after back-filling the hole.
