Pears are among the easiest and most attractive fruit trees for the home landscape. Lovely even in winter, pears are easy to prune and can be trained into a formal or informal appearance. For small landscapes and easy harvest, choose a dwarf cultivar.
These productive trees yield bushels of succulent fruits. Many pears need a pollinizer. Use any other pear. Be sure to select a self-fruitful type if you have space for only one tree.
how to grow Pear
Most fruits are picked when they are ripe or nearly so. Pears are the exception. A tree-ripened pear breaks down, turning soft and brown at the core. Harvest pears when they have reached full size but are still green and firm. Store them in a cool, dark place.
