The Beurre D'Anjou Pear Tree was originally a French pear. It has been grown in America since 1900. After blooming in mid-April the Beurre D'Anjou Pear Tree puts on fruit that stays green from onset until ripening in mid-August. Best eaten fresh, the flesh of this large, short necked, conical pear is best described as creamy white and buttery, with a sweet, slightly acidic flavor. The Beurre D'Anjou Pear Tree requires 700 chill hours and a pollinator such as the Bartlett Pear Tree, or the Bosc to produce.
