Tree Fruits – Pears

This document reviews the major pear cultivars recommended for Ontario in the Pear Cultivars factsheet. In it, the term cultivar is any horticulturally recognized and named type or sort that can only be maintained through vegetative propagation or the use of selected breeding lines and seed sources. Spring frost during bloom is a threat in most regions of Ontario. To ensure fruiting, pears should be grown in areas that have some moderating affect from one of the Great Lakes or on a site with a slope that allows for good air drainage.

Cultivars and requirements are described below.
