The Chanticleer Pear is a upright-pyramidal tree that is much narrower than other ornamental pears. This tree makes a valuable addition to the landscape and is a good choice where lateral space to spread is limited. It has attractive flowers, foliage and fall color. "Chanticleer" is less susceptible to early freezes than other Pears. It will grow up to 40 feet high and 15 feet wide. The 'Chanticleer' Pear is very adaptable to many different soils and it tolerates drought, heat and pollution. Plant in full sun. Prune in winter or early spring. Hardy to zone 4. Because of its shape, the crown is less prone to branch breakage with heavy winter snow. This variety of callery pear is resistant to fireblight.
