Kieffer Pear Tree Pollination
Kieffer Pear Trees are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Kieffer Pear Tree will drastically increase the size of your crop.
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.

Customer Reviews & Photos
- pear tree
thr keifer pear
It arrived in short time and well packed. It was tall as I wanted almost 7 ft. It went into the ground the same day. I am hoping for pears finally since my Bartlett of 6 years has not had any pears only some spring flowers. So I will wait until early Spring and see what nature will present. The only problem I have is that the leaves have many large black spots. Between my my new peach tree and new pear tree and my 3 yr old fig tree whose does carry fruit it should be an exciting spring and summer.
HIGH HOPES FOR OUR KIEFFER PEAR
Ordering on line was easy. Delivery was fast and excellent. Tree was boxed and wrapped well. We planted immediately. Since we have winter coming to our area (IL), it will be a while to see how the KIEFFER will produce. For now it looks great.
Shipment delayed. But customer service was top notch
Shipment was delayed; tree was struggle, leaves are turning black and falling with a touch. Contact customer service immediately. After reviewing the pictures, without a question, a new tree was on the way. 10/10 Customer service.
