  • It's blooming time is not listed anywhere?

    Arganche is a mid season bloomer making it universally compatible with our European pears for the purpose of cross pollination.

Love this pear

Just ate my first harvest (late July in Vancouver WA)! Absolutely delicious. An attractive, naturally neat small tree--beautiful, fragrant small pears with nice floral flavors. Interesting swollen branch tips lead to strong, robust branches. Slow to grow but needed almost no pruning.
