Ask a Question
  • Would a Conference or a Moonglow Pear be a good pollinator?

    Moonglow would work fine, but Conference blooms too early.

  • Is the Harrow Delight Pear tree a bare root?

    Yes, this tree is shipped bareroot.

  • Are these good for canning? Do they store well for very long if refrigerated?

    Harrow Delight does not store exceedingly long. They are a Barlett hybrid and are acceptable for canning, but not at good as other firmer fleshed pears like Conference.

  • I've read elsewhere this variety blooms late enough to cross pollinate some Asian pear Varieties. Is this true? I'm wanting to plant a few European pears bit already have several young Asian pear trees. Hosui, 20th Century, Shinseiki.

    Asian pears typically bloom BEFORE European pears, so if you are looking for a European pear that may overlap you will want the earliest blooming ones. Check out our Pear Growing Guide for a bloom time chart. Remember that bloom times may vary climate to climate and even if some European and Asian pears overlap in one part of the country they may not overlap in another. Good luck!

  • what pears can pollinate harrow delight var.

    Any other mid or late season European pear. Refer to our European Pear Growing Guide for a complete list.

  • What are some recommendations for pollinators?

    This is a bloom group 3 pear and will need a bloom group 2 or 3 pear for pollination. Check out our European Pear Growing Guide in the Help Center tab for more information.

Tree came in great shape with good looking roots ball. Young leaves are sprouting.

Bareroot across country and my tree is not coming to life

I planted my bare root Harrow pear as soon as it arrived and gave it a deep watering each day since. It's been more than 10 days and showing no signs of life. It came packed in wet newspaper and nothing looked broken. Quite concerned that it's not sprouting.

Harrow Delight

Harrow arrived in good shape; the roots were moist and healthy looking. I got it in the ground with a stake and am planning on training it as espellair.
