The Chanticleer Pear is a type of Callery pear tree, with limited spread in the crown, making it a great tree for areas with limited space in the canopy, or for a row of ornamentals. It blossoms white in spring, and the leaves turn an assortment of colors in fall, including red, orange, and purple. Best of all it requires minimal pruning to maintain its verticality. At maturity the Chanticleer will be 35 ’ at maximum and have a spread of about 16 ’.
Height will increase by 13 ” at a minimum every year, with proper conditions, but the tree can grow more than two feet in a single growing season. Well drained soils are best, and pH isn ’t important, with full sunshine every day.
