Pyrus communis 'Gem'

This disease-resistant beauty is a real jewel! Gem has proven itself in extensive testing around the nation and is newly released by the USDA and bred by Dr. Richard Bell.  The large, beautifully red-blushed fruit is juicy and sweet, with a delicious mild pear flavor. It ripens mid season and is a good keeper. It can be eaten mature from the tree while it is crisp and sweet or be stored and allowed to soften and ripen fully.

It is highly fire blight AND cedar trellis rust resistant and is very productive at an early age. Bloom category 1.

Bare root gem pears

I ordered two Gem Pears. They are the most beautiful bare-root trees I have purchased! We have over 30 fruit trees so we are not new to buying and planting trees. They arrived perfect and the instructions and advice from Raintree was excellent. These trees were so awesome I ordered two other trees after their arrival!

Looks to be healthy. Small tree.

Received small tree with 3in - 6in branches. It’s budding.
