The tree is very good
I received my Kiefer pear last October along with other fruit trees to plant on the homestead. The tree survived the winter here in Indiana, blossomed and has fruit. I'm ecstatic with how healthy the tree is and looking forward to harvesting from this "beloved heirloom".
Kieffer pear tree
Received one Kieffer pear tree last year. It was just a stick. It grew 2ft over one year, started to bloom in April and now shows the first pears growing. The tree looks beautiful. Lots of amazing green leaves. I decided to purchase a second one and hope for the same results. Great tree for small places.
Doesn't survive central Florida (Citrus County)
One season then nothing. Dead (sorry, over exaggerating, two total leaves) in less than a year and I bought and paid for the tallest tree. Total waste of money. I am not happy!
We're so sorry that your kieffer pear didn't do well! Look for an email from one of our customer care reps soon and we'll help get this issue resolved.
Tree is still healthy despite Fedex’s Mess up.
I was very concerned about what kind of condition the tree would be in due to fedex hanging on to it for 4 extra days. FGT provided great customer support. I called them twice. They reassured me that if the trees didn’t survive they would replace them. Fedex finally delivered my trees today. They had been in the shipping box for 6 days. I couldn’t believe how good the Kieffer looked. Despite being loaded on a truck several times just to be unloaded again at the same shipping center there were no broken branches. Not even a loose leaf in the box. I planted it soon after receiving it and I think it’s going to do just fine. FGT does a great job packing their trees. I ordered three more today.
Planting & Care
1. Planting: Plant your Pear Tree in a location that features full sun (6 to 8 hours per day) and well-draining soil. Choose a bright, semi-sheltered location, preferably with Southern exposure. Once you're ready to plant, dig a hole three times the size and just as deep as the root ball. Plant the tree so that the roots are spread in the hole and the entire root ball is covered with soil. Fill in the hole completely and gently remove air pockets that may have formed by tamping down, and finally, water to settle the roots.
2. Watering: Water your Pear as necessary, generally once per week until the soil is moist but not oversaturated. When the weather gets hot and dry during the peak of summer, increase the amount of water to maintain proper hydration and moisture. Do not water the Pear Tree after the first frost in the fall. You should resume watering once the last frost has past.
But if you're not sure when to water, simply check the soil about 2 or 3 inches down. If the soil is dry in this area, it's time to water.
3. Pruning: When pruning, it’s important to trim the tree's central leader to promote an upright position. If there are any competing branches present, remove them so that multiple leaders do not form. Maintain the tree’s natural shape by pruning large, lateral branches. Dead, dying or wilted branches should always be removed to help the Pear Tree focus its energy on growing healthy.
Tip: It’s always good to sterilize your cutting tool(s) with rubbing alcohol to ensure a clean cut.
