This is one fruit that some people love, and other people can not stand the taste. When I was younger, I did not enjoy them but now it is a different story. Remember, I shared with you how to can pears already on this blog. I jumped the gun, we should have covered how to grow pears first.

Did you know a Pear tree can produce fruit for up to 75 years of their life? There are a few things that you need to know, if you are going to grow these trees successfully. Some varieties cross pollinate others are self fertile. The tree will grow to about 25 feet high, although there are some dwarf varieties too.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

The best time to plant your pear seedlings is early spring or late fall in warm climates. Find a nice sunny location to plant your tree, which is protected from the winds and cold. If you are planting more than one tree make sure you plant them at least 20 to 25 feet apart. Your soil must be deep and fertile, allowing the roots to grow deep.

Apply some compost at planting and remember to keep well watered. To aide with watering you will also need a heavy mulch. Another option is to grow some sort of grass around the base of the tree. Prune the top to prevent accelerated upwards growth. As far as diseases and pests are concerned, keep an eye out for fire blight.
