    The benefits of the Drop ‘N Grow™ bag…

    These trees are originally grown in a field and naturally have a larger root system than container grown trees. This means you get a plant that will become established quicker and provide you with superior growth in the spring.

    Your tree arrives dormant (sleeping for the winter). Without foliage to support, it doesn't require as much water or nutrients to survive. So transplanting is stress-free.

    If you plant in the winter, your roots will continue to grow and become more established. When spring arrives you will see bright new foliage appearing. 

    These will be the easiest trees you have every planted!  Simply dig your hole, place the Drop ‘N Grow™ bag in the center (burlap included) then use excess dirt to fill the hole.  That’s it!

These Trees Are Fanatastic !
I bought two of these trees 6 years ago for ornamental fruit trees. They are now 25'+ in height and have produced pears the last three seasons. These trees have withstood the last 2 brutal winters with temps to 65 below wind chill. They are very hardy. Can withstand frosts. Last season we harvested 40 (5 gallon) buckets of pears. The wife & I can pears and make pear sauce. Also make great pear pies and pastries. friends and family cannot believe how deliciously sweet these pears are. We add no sugar to the pear sauce.

GREAT BIG TREE!
VERY HEALTHY TREE, I EXPECT PEARS NEXT YEAR! I LIKE THE FACT THAT FAST-GROWING-TREES USUALLY PRODUCE FRUIT THE FIRST OR SECOND YEAR. i WON'T BE BUYING LITTLE RUNTY TREES FROM OTHER NURSERIES THAT TAKE 5-8 YEARS TO DO ANYTHING!

Good trees
I planted 6 in May,2014 they weren't planted until they were bone dry and I would have understood if they had all died. In fact 5 survived and grew pretty well. I was unable to water them after their initial watering at planting (which is usually OK here), and they didn't do as well as apples, plums and cherries bought at the same time. That has been my experience with pears before. They would appreciate more care.

Tree arrived in great condition. We transplanted it in early spring and it has taken off well, with lots of leaf growth during its first year on our property. We are very pleased with it so far. Only reason I didn't give 5 stars is that I'd like to see if/how it produces fruit

Great tree
The tree was in great shape when I received it. I slowly introduced the tree to full sunshine, per instructions, before I planted it. Its been in the ground for two weeks now and appears to be doing just fine. I would order another of these trees and may do so in the spring. I live South of Atlanta, GA in growing zone 8.

Pear Tree
I ordered the Kieffer Pear Tree with the growth mixture to help get it started. I mulched around the bottom, and then waited. When it arrived, it was just a "stick" and bare root, so I was a little skeptical. Well, after regular thorough watering and bright sunshine, the first leaves appeared! It seems to do very well with the natural rain water here in Florida. I don't know that I'll get fruit the first year, but that's okay as long as it continues to get strong and sprout plenty of leaves and branches. So far, so good!

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Kieffer Pear Tree



Step 1: Dig Your Hole


Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Kieffer Pear Tree.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.



Step 2: Place Your Plant


Next, separate the roots of your Kieffer Pear Tree gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole


As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Kieffer Pear Tree again after the transplant is complete.

My husband had wanted a pear tree in our backyard that would be self-pollinating and low-maintenance, and he selected Kieffer Pear Tree because it fit his criteria best of every other pear tree that he looked at while researching them.
Ekaterina B on Apr 21, 2016
I believe that this may be the same as the pear tree that already grows in our yard. It was there when we bought the house, the pears are amazing! Thin skinned, juicy, easy to grow! We can't get enough of them! I hope that this is its match, we want more!!

Can you use a Kieffer pear to pollinate another pear variety ?
Stephanie J on Mar 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes you can pollinate a Kieffer with another Kieffer or any other pear such as Bartlett, Red Anjou, or Shinko.
I am looking a replacing a dying dog wood with a fruit tree, the dogwood is quite large and I'm having it removed at the end of the month. When should I buy my tree for growing region 6? How long can it remain unplanted and be ok? I probably wouldn't plant it until the end of March. Also, I'm thinking of the Kieffer pear tree because of it's hardiness and fruit. Can we buy larger than what is on your website?
Brian R on Feb 9, 2015

Is there any way to prevent fruiting that doesn't harm the tree? It's being planted in a public area.
Anne M on Mar 30, 2015

Is it ok to plant the tree in August or September in Arkansas? And do I need 2 trees to produce pears?
Timarie A on Aug 14, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I'm in North Texas, not too far from Arkansas. We planted our tree in August last year (2015) while son was visiting. Knew it wasn't the optimum time but hoped with TLC it would do OK. It's doing well this spring, lots of leaves. We mulched after planting and watered it almost every day during the remaining hot months.

WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO PLANT THIS TREE IN MISSOURI ? ?
DOUGLAS on Aug 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi Douglas
The best time to plant a Kieffer Pear is in the late fall bare root. This gives it more time to acquire root growth before spring blooming. We have these available now but I'm afraid it's just too hot. It would be better to wait until fall. We will be carrying bare root in the fall. Happy Gardening
When does it bloom? How old must it be?
Richard S on Jun 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Kieffer pear trees should produce fruit one year after being planted. Our fruit trees are grafted, so they produce fruit years sooner than those grown from seed.

Will trees and shrubs look like the photographs?


Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos. Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.


Trimming & Pruning

Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You!


Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
