Devoe European Pear


Devoe European Pear

Pyrus communis Late Summer. Possibly a seedling of Clapp’s Favorite. Marlboro, NY, 1947.

Fine-grained buttery melting white flesh is juicy and sweet with notes of honey and vanilla. Very attractive large elongated pyriform fruit with a bright spotted reddish-pink blush—like a stretched out Bosc with the coloring of Clapp’s. The USDA’s pear germplasm repository describes it as “pretty enough to pose for a still life.” Best for fresh eating, does not keep well. Eat when it gets soft right around the stem. Z4. Maine Grown. (2½-6' bare-root trees)

Additional Information

European Pears

Although some pears appear to be self-pollinating, we recommend a second variety for pollination. Bloom dates for all varieties are similar. Plant 15–20' apart. For 2024, European Pears and Perry Pears are on OHxF97 or a similar rootstock.
