Pear Trees - Ayers

Pyrus communis 'Ayer'.
USDA Hardiness Zones: 5-8

The Ayers Pear tree is an heirloom variety, known for its exceptional fruit and breathtaking display of colors throughout the seasons. Starting with beautiful, crisp white blossoms in spring, the Ayers Pear Tree transitions into glossy, dark green leaves that provide shade during the hot Summer months. As fall approaches, the foliage transforms into vibrant shades of red, adding a touch of elegance to any landscape. The fruits are stunning on the tree - a pleasing rounded shape, with a deep buttery yellow skin, blushed with red. We love this pear for its smooth, melting flesh and incomparable flavor of pear nectar, sweet as sugar, literally. These pears have high sugar content, making them a delicious mid-Summer treat and are among the outstanding dessert pears available today. Ayers can be eaten fresh or cooked. Hardy and adaptable, Ayers Pear Tree thrives in growing zones 5-8, reaching a mature height of 15-20 feet. But that not all - this European pear requires only 300 chill hours, far fewer than most other pear trees, making it a great choice for Southern Gardens. Bring beauty, abundance and delectable flavors into your backyard with the Ayers Pear Tree.

How to Plant
STEP 1) First, decide on a planting location. Consider carefully what kind of sun, soil, and growing-space your tree or shrub will need.
STEP 2) Once you've located the perfect spot, the hole you are digging must be at least double the width and as deep as the root system you are planting.
STEP 3) Remove the plant from the pot and place the root ball in the hole. The top of the root system should be level with the ground. Before placing the tree or shrub in the hole, use your hands to gently break up the root system.
STEP 4) Once the plant is in place, backfill the hole with native soil and any leftover potting material.
STEP 5) Pack down the soil to eliminate any air pockets.
STEP 6) When finished, water thoroughly.
