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.
texas hardy tree
I was worried this tree would have problems in the triple digit heat this year. so far it is doing well and thriving.
As usual excellent shipping!
My Kieffer pear arrived today. FGT is in SC I'm in NC so it only takes one day. Some of the leaves look a little bug eaten but for the most part it looks very healthy. I'm only 4.5' above sea level and we've had about 40" of rain in the last 2 months. I'll be mound planting it this weekend - big mound. Not too much rain in the near forecast so maybe I'll be riding around in the golf cart watering trees in the next few weeks. Once planted the tree is going to get a dousing with neem oil and mild soap. Should take care of any bug problems - if they exist. Overall very happy with my purchase.
Love the Kieffer
Kieffer is doing quite well as are the Cherry trees and apple trees. The Peach not so much...it has had issues from beginning and still not doing anything.
I love my trees !
I love my trees !! A McIntosh apple I'd purchased last year has 7 apples on it ! The pear I purchased this spring has one. You send great quality trees that when planted don't wilt back or have leaves drop off and I'd definitely recommend you to others. Thank You !!
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.
