Southern Bartlett Soft Pear – Super Soft!
This pear has made its way to us via two avid fruit collectors Carl Mohrherr of Pace, Florida and Travis Callahan of Abbeville, Louisiana. The South has long needed a pear that can match up with the northern Bartlett. The Southern Barlett is a juicy, very large pear with tender fine textured flesh. The shape is similar to the Bartlett. A vigorous grower with a spreading shape and gorgeous orange leaves in the Fall. The Southern Bartlett is also know for its early yielding of fruit and plenty of it! Ripens Early August through Early September. Pollinate with COURTHOUSE, GOLDEN BOY, KEIFFER, LE CONTE, ORIENT or TENNS. Zones 8A-9A.
