Ambrosia™ Pear Tree

Big Fruits with Spectacular Flavor!

Exquisitely rich and juicy with a smooth texture—you'll delight in Ambrosia's unparalleled flavor! This very high-quality pear bears annually and at a young age (often in its third year), with high tolerance to fire blight. Huge, golden-brown fruit, often blushed with soft pink, is ready for harvest in mid to late Aug. PP16759.

Why buy a Deluxe package - Deluxe fruit trees include 2 oz. Quik-Cal Pelletized Calcium to enhance fruit quality, 12 oz. bag of Fruit Tree Food Starter Formula, easy-to-use tree ties, a premium tree guard to protect the trunk from gnawing pests, mowers and weed trimmers, and a copy of Backyard Horticulture for Fun and Profit—How to Make $10,000 in Your Spare Time.
