- Good storing pear
- Excellent texture for cooking
- Resistant to fire blight
One of the best dessert-quality pear varieties to grow in the South, Warren Pear Tree bears medium to large, long-necked, pale green fruits that are sometimes blushed with red. The fruits have a juicy, sweet flesh with a wonderful buttery texture. The firm flesh holds up well to cooking and poaching. The fruits also store well. Discovered in Hattiesburg, Mississippi several decades ago, this pear tree performs well in all the Coastal South areas, as well as all areas of zones 7-9. The trees are very resistant to fire blight. 600 chill hours are required for a successful harvest.
