Chanticleer pear trees are a garden favourite for both the visual interest they offer and their rich profusion of flowers. The showy white blossoms appear in clusters in springtime. The fruit follows the flowers, but don’t expect pears if you start growing Chanticleer pears! The “fruit” of Callery Chanticleer pears is brown or russet and the size of a pea. Birds love it and it clings to the branches into winter, helping to feed wildlife when little else is available. Chanticleer (Pyrus calleryana ‘Chanticleer’) is a cultivar of the Callery ornamental pear and has a growth habit that is neat and tailored with a slender pyramid shape. Chanticleer pear trees are thornless and grow fairly rapidly. Excellent for sites where lateral space is restricted. Its tough disposition and aesthetic attributes combine to make a wonderfully versatile tree for home gardens or streets and public areas.
