     With the Summercrisp pear, the name says it all. This fruit has the juiciness and crunchy texture of an Asian Pear such as Chojuro, while maintaining the resilience, firm shape, and aromatic flavor of the European Pears such as Bartlett. In addition to being extremely cold hardy, Summercrisp is also one of the earliest pears to ripen every year! This pear tree easily withstands brutally cold winters and blooms in late spring to avoid frost damage. The amount of time it takes between the flowers blooming to producing ripe fruit is the shortest of all pear trees! This allows Summercrisp to thrive just about anywhere, especially in harsh climates that typically have a short growing season. These rounded pears take on a mostly crimson blush when ripe, with a pale yellow tinge remaining on the shaded side of the fruit. Also, Summercrisp is one of the few pears that is at peak flavor fresh off the tree! These beautifully colored pears don’t require the counter-ripening time of most cultivars, they are sweetly delicious picked fresh! With its incredible cold hardiness and its delicious crimson fruit having the shortest time to harvest, Summercrisp is a delicious and rare addition to any home orchard!
