Description

The Original Southern Sugar Pear, dripping sweet in the August heat. Introduced by the Tennessee Agricultural Experiment Station in 1954 as a cross of Garber x Anjou. Ayers combines exceptional disease resistance and reliability with extra-heavy yields of sugary-sweet dessert pears. Pears mature early to a medium size with bright yellow, flushed pink skin and contain buttery, melting, extra-sweet sub-acid flesh with virtually no grit. Excellent choice for Southern/Mid-Atlantic growers, local market growers, and organic growers. Resistant to fire-blight.  Early pears like Ayers do not keep.

All of our pear trees are FIELD-GROWN for high-quality and have excellent, robust, natural root systems.
