About Pear Trees

Did you know that it’s easier to grow pears than it is to grow apples? It’s true!

Pears are a hardy fruit, as they are more resistant to pests and diseases and thrive in small spaces. You will also want to order at least two different types of pear trees since they require cross-pollination.

Care for Pear Trees

growing guide

When picking a location for your tree, try to find a well-drained area with sandy loam soil. This is the best for pears, but as long as there is good drainage your tree should thrive. Place your tree in full sun for the best growth and production rate. Pears prefer slightly acid soil (pH 5.9-6.5). Spacing for pears should be at least 15 feet apart but no more than 20 feet apart in order to cross-pollinate.
