Pollination Info

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.
