Pyrus calleryana 'Chanticleer'
Chanticleer callery pear

The Chanticleer pear has a narrower pyramidal habit than 'Bradford', and good fireblight resistance, but has a less showy fall color. Flower displays are just as showy, and the clean foliage is attractive throughout the summer months, presenting a slightly finer texture due to the narrowness of the leaves. It does not appear to have the problems with ice damage that are so prevalent with 'Bradford.' The cultivar names 'Cleveland Select' and 'Select' are likely different names for the same plant. 'Stone Hill' and 'Rancho' are fairly similar as well.

Habit:Narrow pyramidal, very uniform, multiple leaders, formal
Size:30-50' high by 15-20' wide
Color:Glossy dark green in summer, changing to a moderate purple-red in autumn
Texture:Medium-fine
Hardiness:Zone 5a USDA
