Golden Spice Pear
Golden Spice is a delicious pear with sweet flesh and a hint of spice. It is also a great choice for making cider (perry) as well. It is very cold hardy to zone 3 and produces small yellow pears in September. These pear trees are also highly ornamental with beautiful white flowers appearing in the spring. It has good resistance to disease.
Pears have an upright growth habit, resulting in a taller height than apple trees, but with less width. These trees could live for hundreds of years if cared for properly, gifting your landscape with fruit for many generations. They need well drained soil and full sun to grow well. Pear trees need another pear tree that is a different cultivar in order to cross pollinate and get fruit. Our pears are grown on standard Ussurian rootstock.
