Blushing Sweet Yellow Luscious Pear Tree
- Intense Flavor
- Cold Tolerant
- Disease Resistant
Luscious Pear (Pyrus ‘Luscious’) produces a medium to small bright yellow pear with a lovely red blush. The fruit is very juicy and scrumptiously sweet.
A vigorous grower that appreciates full sun, this variety is considered a mid-size tree and prefers well-drained soil. It is extremely hardy and can thrive in conditions as low as negative 50 degrees Fahrenheit. Keep it smaller for smaller yards with an annual summer pruning.
Luscious Pear trees are also disease resistant and resistant to blight. Even if your thumbs are “less than green”, you’ll find it easy to grow and maintain. Expect your Luscious Pear to begin bearing fruit two to three years after planting.
To say that the Luscious Pear is a showstopper is an understatement; this beautiful tree announces the start of the season with huge clusters of snow white flowers to add to your property’s curb appeal. When harvest time arrives each fall, count on it producing oodles of juicy pears, ready to pluck right from the tree.
Fill your fruit bowl on the counter, make fresh jams and jellies, or impress guests with these dessert-quality pears in your favorite recipes, like caramelized pears served with pork roast.
Or delight your family when the smell of a pear crisp baking fills the house. Warm pear crisp will be a perfect finish to a brisk autumn day, setting a harvest mood at dinner time.
Fans of the Bartlett pear will love Luscious Pears, too. The Luscious is similar to the Bartlett but has an even more robust flavor intensity that the whole gang will appreciate.
The Lucious Pear does best with a second tree for cross pollination. As beautiful as they are, you’ll want to plant two to create a stunning focal point.
