The Williams' bon chrétien pear, commonly called the Williams pear, or the Bartlett pear in the United States and Canada, is the most commonly grown variety of pear in most countries outside Asia. It is a cultivar of the species Pyrus communis, commonly known as the European Pear.

  • Produces large, yellow fruit with a smooth and juicy white flesh--ideal for eating, canning and preserves.
  • Yields ripe fruit typically in late August or early September that will keep for up to 3 months if stored properly.
  • Begins to bear fruit while young and has been known to continue bearing for over 100 years.
  • Blooms just before the leaves appear in the spring, with showy white flowers.
  • Is available in standard and dwarf sizes. Our standard Bartlett seedlings are budded onto whole rootstock, and our dwarf seedlings are grafted to Quince or Quince A (Malling A).
  • Needs regular watering.
  • Requires cross-pollination with Orient or another European pear variety (excluding Kieffer) growing within 100' for standard trees and within 20' for dwarf trees.
  • Has a chill hours (CU) requirement of 800. (Chill hours are the average hours of air temperature between 32° and 45° F in a typical winter season.)
  • Features simple leaves that are glossy green, measure up to 3" long, have fine teeth on the margin and alternate on the twig.
  • Grows in an oval shape.
