A Lifetime of Maintenance-Free Fruit...One Tree
Why Bartlett Pear Trees?
Now you can grow your own pears and not have to worry about what you're eating. The biggest benefit is the taste that comes when your pears are naturally tree-ripened...rather than being picked early and refrigerated.
The Bartlett is so popular because of its sweet, juicy taste. Each year your tree provides bushels of pears that are great for canning, cooking, and snacking.
Plus, it's a cold-hardy tree that is adaptable to a wide range of soil conditions. Plant several to ensure you get plenty of large pears.
Why Fast-Growing-Trees.com is Better
When you order your Bartlett from Fast Growing Trees, you get a well-rooted, better-branched variety that can't be found at big-box nurseries or local growers. That means you get all of the rewards without any of the work.
These well-branched Bartlett Pear trees will sell out, so we recommend that you order yours today. Get your Bartlett today...and enjoy home-grown pears tomorrow!
Planting & Care
1. Planting: Dig a hole three times the size and just as deep as the root ball. You want to be careful that the tree does not settle too low in the soil. After the hole is dug, carefully loosen and unwind any roots as necessary. Fill in the hole completely and gently remove air pockets that may have formed by tamping down with a spade. Water the tree thoroughly after the tree has been planted.
2. Watering: Water your pear tree as necessary giving it at least 1 or 2 inches of water once a week. 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 passed.
3. Pruning: When pruning, it’s important to trim the pear 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 and producing an abundance of fruit.
