- A very tight narrow pyramidal form, with multiple leaders. It has a moderate growth rate, reaching 35 x 15 ft ( 11 x 4.5 m) in 15 years. It grows up more than out so it is suitable for narrow spaces. However, Jacobson (1996) thinks there is more than one clone by this name since some trees are practically columnar. It flowers later in the spring than ‘Bradford’. Fall color is usually red-purple.
Full sun, regular watering, reportedly has good fireblight resistance
Hardy to USDA Zone 5 It was selected in 1959, the original tree was growing on public property in Cleveland, Ohio. Presumably the source of its cultivar name, 'Cleveland Select'. It was introduced in 1965 by the Scanlon nursery (PP 2489).
