The Ayers Pear Tree is without doubt the ‘pear of the South’, combining excellent fruit quality with a very short chilling requirement and high resistance to fire blight disease. It grows well from zone 6 southwards, and produces a heavy crop of medium-sized pears that ripen from mid-August into September. The round fruit has a short neck and yellow skin, with a red blush when ripe. The flesh is sweet, juicy and free of grit, making it excellent for eating, and also for salads and the kitchen.

  • Top pick pear variety for warm zones
  • Ripens in August and September
  • Excellent quality for eating and cooking
  • High resistance to fire blight disease
  • Attractive white and pink spring flowers

Grow the Ayers Pear Tree in full sun for best ripening, and in rich but well-drained soil. It is highly resistant to the deadly disease called fire blight, and other pests or diseases are rarely serious problems. Prune as needed in summer, keeping an open tree form, or growing spread out as an espalier on a south-facing wall. For good quality fruit don’t allow the tree to be dry for too long.
