The Moonglow Pear Tree combines top-quality large pears and outstanding flavor with excellent disease resistance to deadly fire blight. It has large fruits with a yellow skin and a bright-red blush, that are buttery, juicy, soft and delicious. They ripen in early August for summer eating or baking, and this vigorous tree will be yielding bushels of pears within just a few years. It grows in all cool and warm zones, and it can be grown as a specimen tree or trained on a wall or fence as an espalier.

  • Delicious connoisseur flavor and quality
  • Very high resistance to fire blight disease
  • Early variety for harvest in early August
  • Grows well in all cool to warm zones
  • Don’t forget to add a suitable pollinator

Full sun is needed by the Moonglow Pear Tree to bloom well and ripen its fruit. The soil should be rich, well-drained and not too dry. With good disease resistance, other pests are rarely serious problems. Pruning is done in summer to develop short branches that flower well, and the fruit should be thinned out when small to give you a quality harvest.
