The Atlantic Queen pear tree is an old French pear rediscovered in a New York coastal garden. The Atlantic Queen pear tree is a midseason ripening tree with excellent fire blight resistance. The fruit is very large, yellow-green skin up to 1.5 pounds. The Atlantic Queen pear is aromatic with good flavor and buttery texture. The pear tree is productive, even under adverse growing conditions with good overall disease resistance and tolerant of tough growing conditions from coastal salt sprays, heavy soils to blistering heat. Also a prolific bearer to boot. Skin turns a characteristic yellow when ready to be eaten. Stores three months or more in cold storage. As with other fireblight resistant pears, farmers prefer this variety for ease of growing. Excellent choice for espalier.

Size of tree
Our trees range in height from 4-8 ft. in our field and trimmed to 4 to 5 ft. when shipped. Our young two year trees are most often feathered (side limbs). The trees diameter (caliper) is often 1/2 to 3/4 inch; *As noted by University of California Scientists and other qualified professionals the most successful trees often have caliper from 1/2" to 5/8" and usually establish faster than smaller and larger planting stock. .
Basic idea for Pruning: Most fruit trees should be pruned in frost-free periods mid to late winter. (apricots best after bud break) Remove most vertical branches and shorten side branches. Fruiting wood is best on horizontal to 45 degree limbs. Learn more...
Shipping Note: Our fruit trees and berries are delivered to you bareroot during their winter dormancy from January through May depending on USDA zone. Trees are shipped with your invoice and helpful planting directions. There is no minimum quantity required but shipping rate for an individual tree is expensive since UPS/Fed Ex charge a dimensional weight and an additional handling fee to ship a tree.
