Crisp 'n Sweet™ Pear Tree

A Breeding Breakthrough!


Imagine the juiciness and rich sweet flavor of a traditional European pear coupled with the downright addictive crispness of an Asian pear, and you have Crisp 'n Sweet! You'll never find such taste and texture combination in any other pear! As if its eating quality were not enough, Crisp 'n Sweet is a breeze to grow—trees have a high resistance to fire blight. Blooms are frost tolerant so you are virtually guaranteed a large harvest each year, and, unlike many pears, Crisp 'n Sweet ripens to perfection on the tree. No more guesswork, just pick the fruit fresh from the tree mid August and discover the delicious difference of Crisp 'n Sweet! Zones 5-7. Green Jade cultivar. U.S. Patent No. 14034.

Why buy a Standard Deluxe or Li'l Big Deluxe package - Deluxe fruit trees include 2 oz. Quik-Cal Pelletized Calcium, 12 oz. bag of Fruit Tree Food Starter Formula and a premium tree guard to protect the trunk for gnawing pests, weed trimmers and mowers. Li'l-BIG™ Deluxe fruit trees also include our innovative tree support, recommended for all Li'l-BIG trees.
