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.
Care Guide

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.

Pear tree

I got my tree save and in very good condition. It’s going great.

Orient pear tree

I ordered the contender peach tree and an orient pear tree. Both trees were packaged well in the same box an arrived quickly. My peach tree is thriving and I gave 5 stars.

My pear tree arrived with chewed leaves. Looked like bugs chewed it. There were also dark dried leaves on it when it arrived that have crumbled and fell off the tree. I would not have sent this pear tree to a customer and expected a five star review. I did take pictures for the 1 year guarantee just in case the tree does not make it. It does seem to be improving slightly but it arrived in rough shape. I am hopeful the tree will continue to improve.
