Home » Endicott Pear Tree


In the 1630s in the Massachusetts Bay Colony, a Puritan settler planted a pear tree…the first pear tree in America. More than a century later, the tree still bore fruit, impressing a famous poet and one of the first US presidents. The pear tree survived hurricanes, fire, and vandalism, and today, nearly 400 years after it was first planted, it’s alive and strong, and clones of it grow all around the United States.

This is the amazing true story of the Endicott Pear tree, and how it grew up with our nation.
