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!!

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?

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
Best Answer: Flick the flower off the bud as soon as it appears in spring. This should be done to all trees their first year so the tree can spend its energy on the root and branches.

How often do you water?
Brandy S on Mar 7, 2016
Best Answer: Hi Brandy S. I have my irrigation system set up to water my trees every other day. If it looks like it might rain or if it rains I water it less. I think my tree is about two years old but no fruits yet. I hope this help. I'm definitely not an expert ??. Take care and God bless.

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.

We have received and planted the Kieffer Pear tree about a month ago, but it still does not have any visible budding or any leaves unlike the cherry tree that we also ordered from this nursery (it arrived with small leaves that now are very cheery). Is there anything we can do to encourage growth of foliage on the pear tree this year? Do we need to give it a pinch and snip any wood from the top of the brunches to encourage growth? Thank you.
Ekaterina B on May 14, 2016
Best Answer: Take container of stored rain water, reg. bucked and water once or twice a day and watch the added growth from the natural minerials in the water -add. woood chips around the base.

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.
