2 left in stock
Early Gold Pear is a small tree that is typically grown for its edible qualities. It produces chartreuse oblong pears (which are botanically known as 'pomes') with hints of gold and white flesh which are usually ready for picking in early fall. The pears have a sweet taste and a crisp texture. The pears are most often used for fresh eating, cooking, baking and canning. Early Gold Pear is draped in stunning clusters of white flowers with purple anthers along the branches in mid spring. It has dark green foliage throughout the season. The glossy oval leaves turn an outstanding burgundy in the fall. The fruits are showy chartreuse pears with hints of gold, which are carried in abundance in early fall. This is a dense deciduous tree with a shapely oval form. Its average texture blends into the landscape, but can be balanced by one or two finer or coarser trees or shrubs for an effective composition. This plant will require occasional maintenance and upkeep, and is best pruned in late winter once the threat of extreme cold has passed. Early Gold Pear will grow to be about 20 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 12 feet. It has a low canopy with a typical clearance of 4 feet from the ground. It grows at a fast rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for 70 years or more.
