Bite into a Beurre D’Anjou pear to encounter fruit with a soft buttery texture, pears that are large in size and short necked. The skin is green with yellow blush. The Anjou pears are white fleshed with a fine flavor, especially good as fresh fruit. Consider an Anjou pear for juice, sauce, jams and jellies and even drying. The Beurre D' Anjou is pollinated by Bartlett or other pears. 700 chill hours. Shipped potted in soil to ensure the best possible start when planted in yard or garden. Tree about 3 to 4 feet tall, new planting.
Since the fireblight pathogen is a bacteria and not a fungus, most garden fungicides will have minimal effect at best. The copper spray applied to most fruit trees in the winter will slow it down and give partial control.
