Summercrisp is a cultivar that was developed by the University of Minnesota in the 1980’s in an effort to produce more pear trees that would thrive in extreme cold climates. They had great success with Summercrisp that proved to be hardy to zone 3 with great flavour. It produces early on in the year compared to most pears and has a delicious sweet taste that can be eaten right off of the tree. It should be harvested while they are still firm and hard, usually mid to late August before it is fully ripe as pears ripen from the inside out.

Important Information

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 grafted on extremely hardy full sized Ussurian rootstock.
