The Flordahome Pear is good for Gulf Coast planting. It produces large, semi-hard pears that ripen in mid summer. The pears are green and sweet, though slightly tart, and can be eaten fresh or canned. The Flordahome is leaf spot and fire blight resistant. It requires 150-250 chill hours. Hood or Pineapple Pears make good pollinators. At maturity, it can reach a height between 15-20 feet and a width of 12-15 feet. USDA ZONES: Zone 7, Zone 8, Zone 9.

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.

In order to thrive, fruiting pears need sun and water. For the best results, plant in well-drained soil. Prune pears in late winter. In particular, prune in the middle of the tree to make room for air and light circulation.

As always!

Anything from here is always the best. A 3'-4' tree is always right at 4' or even a little over 4', the roots are beyond well-developed and the tree is ready to take off, mine is showing green with some new growth. The price with shipping was high enough that I almost didn't buy it, only previous good experiences swayed me. I could have bought 2 trees elsewhere for what I paid for this but I wind up losing a lot of "cheap" trees. "Buy once, cry once".
