The Red d' Anjou pear tree originated as naturally occurring bud sport found on Green D'Anjou pear tree. "Bud sports" are spontaneous, naturally occurring mutation that crop up on trees. The Red d'Anjou pears, however, are an exception. They occurred twice, as the first red sport of D'Anjou was discovered in the early 1950's near Medford, Oregon, and a second red sport was discovered in the late 1970's in Parkdale, Oregon. Red d'Anjou pears are very similar to the original D'Anjou pear other than color. Large, conical short-necked fruit, with some russeting. The Red d'Anjou pear has a mild, melting white flesh with delicate aroma. Best quality after cold storage. Excellent for pear crisp. Trees are vigorous and hardy and moderately resistant to fire blight. Please refer below for more information on the Red d'Anjou pear trees for sale.
