Duchesse de Berry d’Ete European Pear


Duchesse de Berry d’Ete European Pear

Mid-Late Summer. Seedling from Commune of Saint-Herblain, Dept of Loire-Inferieure, France, 1827.

Very high-quality summer dessert fruit. Semi-fine, melting, juicy, sugary and aromatic. Medium-small roundish yellow fruit blushed red and covered with brown dots. Vigorous upright habit.

We’ve been on a mission to track down lost pears historically grown in Maine. Sometimes it feels a bit like looking for passenger pigeons, but then another one shows up. We found this one in a collection out west. We think it initially came to Maine from one of the large 19th-century nurseries in Rochester, NY. Productive vigorous upright grower. Z4. Maine Grown. (Standard: 2½-6' bare-root trees)

Additional Information


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.
