- Smooth, grit-free texture
- Excellent variety for canning
- Resistant to fire blight
Moonglow Pear produces fruits as beautiful as they are delicious. The medium to large, yellow-tan fruits are blushed with pink—and they have a wonderful, mild flavor and soft, melt-in-your-mouth texture with very little grit. While good for fresh eating, Moonglow Pear is also excellent for making into fresh juice and canning. The fruits ripen in early August, about two weeks before the popular Bartlett Pear. The trees exhibit high resistance to fire blight. For optimal fruit production, use Barlett Pear or Seckel Pear as a pollinator. 700 chill hours are required for a successful harvest. Zones 5-8.
