General Information

There are several cultivars in commerce, including 'Aristocrat', 'Autumn Blaze', 'Bradford' (Bradford Pear, the most commonly planted cultivar), 'Capital', 'Cleveland Select', 'New Bradford', 'Redspire', and 'Whitehouse'.

Callery pear can be used as rootstock for grafting pear cultivars such as Comice, Bosc, or Seckel and especially for nashi pear.


This tree is remarkably resistant to sicknesses or blight, and is killed more often by storms and high winds than by sickness.


many groups have discouraged their use in landscaping in favor of other stronger trees including other Callery Pear cultivars like 'Cleveland Select', but also encourage the use of more locally native tree species.
