Completely free of grit cells, the Carnes Pear is the best hard pear out there for fresh eating right off the tree!
The Carnes pear tree features medium-sized fruit with yellowish-green skin that has a slightly course texture. Ideal for northern Florida landscapes, the Pyrus communis tree blooms in late March and the fruit typically ripens in July.
Specially relevant, this early blooming variety will need another early blooming variety so it cross pollinates properly. A good tree to plant for cross pollination is the Pineapple Pear, Orient Pear, or any other european pear or asian pear.
The common pear tree’s lush green foliage and white blooming flowers offer a beautifully aesthetic appeal to any landscape!
