Pyrus 'Doyenne De Comice'

Comice Pear, Royal Riviera Pear

Deciduous and evergreen Pear trees look good year-round. Foliage on deciduous trees turns bright autumn colors. After their glossy green leaves drop, spring flowers bloom. Fruiting types produce Pears in fall. Like the deciduous varieties, evergreen Pears offer a spectacular spring bloom. Use as shade or street trees. Grow small types in containers. They adapt to most soils, including clay. Pears are also tolerant of air pollution, drought and wind. Prone to fireblight (especially evergreens), Pear psylla and scab. For optimum fruit crops, schedule regular fertilizing, pruning, dormant oil spraying and supplemental watering in arid climates. Prune in later winter or early spring to shape or to remove damaged or crowded branches.
