Gurney's Ambrosia Pear tree produces high yields of huge, golden-brown pears with sweet flavor and an incredibly smooth texture. Unlike many European pears, Ambrosia's fruit have a smooth, not gritty, texture. It also reliably produces annually, not every other year like many other varieties. Ambrosia is a cross between a Honeysweet and a numbered tree, and it starts bearing fruit as early as three years after planting. Other varieties may take up to 8 years. It has a high resistance to fire blight and is available in both standard (25 ft. spread) and semi dwarf (18 ft. spread) sizes. Ambrosia Pear tree prefers full sun and loamy soil. The fruits are ready for harvest in mid to late August. PP16759.
