Flemish Beauty European Pear (Pyrus x ‘Flemish Beauty’)

Flemish Beauty European Pear

The cold-hardy Flemish Beauty European Pear Tree (Pyrus x ‘Flemish Beauty’) produces rich, delicious, red-blushed fruit for fresh eating and drying to enjoy in wintertime. One bite of super-fresh, homegrown buttery pears that melt in your mouth, will make you a life-long fan of this heirloom variety!

Starting off in a cloud of fragrant white blossoms, the Flemish Beauty European Pear trees ripen in the late mid-season. They are precocious and begin bearing at a young age. Letting you not wait as long before your first harvest! They are a perfect snacking size for your lunchbox. The creamy flesh looks beautiful grilled for a moment or two and sliced on a dessert plate with a light drizzle of local honey.

You’ll see fruit with a single, self-pollinating Flemish Beauty, but the crops increase dramatically with a pollination partner. Plus you’ll extend your harvest and broaden your pear flavors when planted with a Bartlett or even an Asian Pear!

Planting and Application:

Pear trees are pretty enough for front yard planting. Turn your sunny foundation planting beds into an Edible Garden and share some of your delicious bounty with neighbors! Try them in a hard-working hedgerow with other Pear trees spaced about six feet apart for privacy and food-producing flowering hedge and juicy property division!

Flemish Beauty pears are rounded and medium-large, with a very smooth texture and sweet taste. They’ve been a favorite in the United States for well over a century and are ideal additions to your backyard orchards or just a single specimen that will have the neighborhood drooling!

Tips for Care:

This spur-bearing Pear needs full sun with at least six hours of direct sunlight a day. Ensure the soil is well-drained. Give Pear trees great air circulation for best results. In cold winters, plant them on north-facing slopes to delay the bloom until the spring weather grows more reliable. Keep Flemish Beauty Pear trees smaller with summer pruning for size control.
