While Bosc Pears are not a Canadian cultivar they are widely grown across Canada and have been extensively trialed. Developed in 1807 by Dr. John-Baptise Van Mons in Belgium, growing Bosc pears is not for the impatient. The trees are difficult to propagate and take a long time to start producing fruit. That being said, it’s well worth the wait. Once the trees become productive, they produce regular and abundant crops.
