Product Description

Tight, Symmetrical Growth Habit Without Pruning

Why Cleveland Pear Trees?

The Cleveland Pear is a perfectly uniform tree, growing in a tight, symmetrical shape without the need for pruning. It grows naturally in a clean oval, making it ideal as a featured front yard tree or borders along roads and driveways.

But no matter where you plant, you'll witness a long-lasting explosion of pure white flowers each spring. And Cleveland Pears are a great improvement over Bradford Pears and Aristocrat Pears, since you get their perfect, symmetrical shape in a much hardier, stronger tree. Plus, the Cleveland Pear has a pleasant aroma…unlike the Bradford, which is famous for its unpleasant scent.

The Cleveland Pear resists damage from extreme snow, ice and wind, and pests, so there’s virtually no maintenance. And its narrow, pyramidal shape makes it well-suited to even the tightest garden spaces. But despite its more manageable size, you still get a gorgeous blanket of blooms and glossy green leaves that transition to striking orange-red in fall.

Why is Better

First, you won’t find a healthier, better-developed Cleveland Pear. We’ve planted, grown and shipped your Cleveland with meticulous care, and now, you get a hassle-free tree that’s ready to thrive.

We’ve put in the hard work at our nursery so that you can get color and explosive blooms as soon as the first spring…especially when you buy our larger Cleveland Pears. Your Cleveland Pear arrives at your door with better-developed, fuller branching, and a robust, healthy root system.

If you’re looking for flowering pear, the Cleveland Pear is the top variety available. Don’t wait – get your Cleveland Pear today!

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Cleveland Pears like full sun (6 to 8 hours of sunlight) to thrive and once established after the first growing season, they're drought tolerant and need little attention.

Dig your hole and make it twice as wide as the diameter and as deep as the depth of the root ball. Place your tree, fill in the soil, and water to settle the roots. Mulch the surrounding soil to preserve moisture.

2. Watering: In the spring and summer, water your tree at least once a week with 5 gallons of water. If the leaves feel brittle or start turning brown around the edges, increase to watering twice a week.

In the winter, a good watering once a month is sufficient. However, if your tree was struggling during the summer season or is young (less than four years old) you can water it every two weeks.

3. Fertilizing: Fertilize in the fall when the tree starts to go dormant, about six weeks prior to the first frost of the season. You can use a general-purpose, balanced fertilizer such as 10-10-10 or similar.

4. Pruning: The best time to prune is in the fall season. Remove any low branching that grows up from the base of the tree, as well as any dead or damaged branches.

Great product & Great experience

First time ordering and do not have anything negative to say. I also bought a lemon/lime tree hybrid with this order. Both trees arrived in great condition. Here's hoping they'll grow into big and healthy trees! Cleveland Pear Tree Cleveland Pear Tree Review

5-6 ft Cleveland Pear

I believe my overall experience from Fast Growing Trees has been great! They offered a lot of detailed information on their website while I was shopping, shipping was incredibly fast (ordered Wednesday and delivery was Friday of the same week), and the trees arrived better than expected. I ordered a 3-4 foot Gala and a 3-4 ft Honey Crisp — they were both just over 4ft tall and sturdier than I expected. I also ordered a 5-6 ft Cleveland Pear, which measured closer to 6ft and looked nice. The leaves were sad looking when we unboxed the trees, but we planted them right after they arrived (today), so I’m sure they will perk back up. The only downfall that I have found is the price; however, I am looking at these trees as an investment in our home that will be around for many years. So for that reason, I am okay paying more for quality trees. Cleveland Pear Tree Review

Received healthy in great condition

Of the four trees I have purchased from FGT's all have come to me in great condition and looking very healthy. My latest purchase the Cleveland Pear was no exception. The tree was received standing right at 7' as ordered leafy and with a nice ball keeping the roots well contained. It's all about the planting as far as I can tell. Get that right and I expect no problems. The other three I purchased last year (emerald green fuja's or something like that) are looking very healthy this spring going into summer.
