Customer Reviews & Photos
- pear tree
We could not open them the first night they arrived one day before expected arrival day. Next day we did open them. We had the pots prepared. They were fresh, vital, and are doing well. We bought 5-foot versions but dies not look like they’ll bear fruit this year because they were already past the blossom stage. They have full sized leaves already. We bought two to increase yield. Looking forward to next years pears!
The trees arrived in great shape. I have planted them and all is well so far. A great looking tree.
I like the Kieffer Pear Tree that I bought. It's so healthy and hopefully to see fruiting in a year or two.
I ordered two Kieffer pears and was very pleased with their size, look like 7 footers. They are dormant for now but look healthy. They are planted and I look forward to spring.
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.
