Unique Delicious Flavor

Semi-dwarf on OHxF333 rootstock.

  • Zones: 5-8
  • Chill hours: 500-600
  • Bloom Time: Late (Based on typical Central Valley California weather)
  • Harvest: September 1 - October 1
  • Looks: Brown skin, russet over the whole pear with a long and narrow shape. Does not need to be peeled before eating.
  • Personality: This pear is famous for its sweetly-spicy flavor. Good for eating fresh or cooked.
  • Facts of note: Susceptible to fire blight in warm, moist climates. Routine care helps prevent this. Bosc pears are firmer fleshed when ripe than most pears. Originating in France in the 1800's, Bosc pears appear often in still-life painting because of their luscious natural beauty.
  • Pollination: Pollenized by Bartlett or other pear.

European pears are late blooming, tolerant of heavy wet soils, and a good choice for many areas. Susceptible to codling moth and some to fire blight. Plant at least two varieties for best results. Harvest 3rd year. On OHxF333 semi-dwarf rootstock. Trees left unpruned reach 2/3 of standard (about 12-18'). By pruning, keep any tree to any size.

Check out our Fruit Tree Harvest Chart to plan for successive harvests.
