Why the Green D'Anjou European Pear Bare Root?

The Green D’Anjou European Pear doesn’t turn yellow when it’s ripe like the more familiar Bartlett. This can make it tricky to know when it’s ready to eat, but you’ll get the hang of it, and then you’ll probably come to prefer it to good old Bartlett. Green D’Anjou is an exquisitely juicy pear with a bright, lively, sweet-tart flavor that carries notes of citrus. It’s delightfully refreshing in salads, smoothies, juices, and cold soups, and, of course, you can eat it all by itself. You can also cook with it—glam up a grilled cheese sandwich with some slices, or bake a lovely tart for dessert. Sublime.

No one is sure exactly where the Green D’Anjou Pear originated. Some say Belgium, but “Anjou” refers to a region in the Loire Valley, so it could have been France. It was imported to the U.S. in 1842. Today, Green D’Anjou makes up one third of the American Pear crop (Bartlett accounts for half of the harvest). It grows to perfection in Oregon and Washington, and these two states supply nearly all of the Anjous you find at the supermarket. This variety is certainly worth trying in home gardens in other parts of the country, however.

How to use in the landscape?

Pick Green D’Anjou Pears when they are large and plump, but still quite firm. Let them ripen several more days off the tree for maximum flavor. If you’re not ready to eat them after picking, store them in the fridge immediately. They’ll keep for months.

Why Bower & Branch?

We do the hard part. Our trees and plants are grown and cared for by only the best, local growers for years before they find their forever home in your landscape. Bower & Branch is known for having hard-to-find, substantial sizes and selection. The quality of our trees and plants are consistent in health and vigor—always ready for immediate impact in your garden and instant curb appeal. We believe in empowering homeowners with the truth about strong, healthy and structurally sound plants that are grown to perform in the ground after they leave the nursery for home delivery, always fresh inventory from the grower

How To Plant

Plant your Green D’Anjou Pear Tree where it can bask in all-day sun and enjoy moderately rich, well-drained soil at its feet. Avoid low-lying areas, where late frosts can zap the early spring blossoms. You’ll need to have another variety of Pear nearby to pollinate the blooms and enable good fruit set. Irrigate using the Elements™ Watering System and feed your tree with Elements™ Fertilizer to ensure that it gets the right amount of moisture and nutrients when it needs them. Proper maintenance is critical in growing Pears, which are unfortunately susceptible to a variety of pests and diseases such as fire blight, which may strike in warm, wet spring weather.

How Does Shipping Work?

Size AA & AAA (our Treelings, Shrubs, Bushes, and Perennials) will be shipped directly to your home by a common carrier. Ships in a plant-safe designed box within 5-7 business days.

How Does Sizing Work?

The size of our trees have nothing to do with the container size like you may find elsewhere–big doesn't mean just height - it’s also vigor, age, and overall health.. Other online retailers are going to tell you that a plant is a seven gallon, that means nothing to your tree or plant (or you.)

Our trees for sale online are graded on large, x-large, and even bigger sizes. This is because our trees are sized by their age—the higher the letter, the more mature the tree. The age determines the trees’ overall height, size of the trunk and the overall branch density.

All of these characteristics are what you should be looking for when choosing a tree for immediate impact and instant curb appeal. Our extra-large tree and plant sizes are sure to wow you and your neighbors!
