Fruitscaping™ with Pear Trees

Dive into the world of Fruitscaping™ with our versatile selection of Pear Trees. Whether you’re looking for the crisp, refreshing flavors of Asian varieties, the traditional juicy delight of Soft pear types, or the firm and tantalizing Hard pear species, we have something to satisfy every palate.

Pear trees are reliable performers that bring beauty, flavor, and a touch of elegance to any garden. Perfectly suited for organic gardening, pear trees are resilient to pests and diseases and require little maintenance, promising bountiful harvests with minimal effort.

These trees appreciate well-drained, loamy soil, rich in organic matter, and they can adapt to a wide range of pH balances, from slightly acidic to slightly alkaline conditions. Pear trees also relish sun-soaked locations, requiring at least six hours of direct sunlight each day to maximize fruit production.

Whether standing alone as a spectacular centerpiece or coupled with other fruit trees, berry bushes, and beneficial flowering plants, pear trees enrich your Fruitscaping™ vision. Their charming white blossoms provide a spring spectacle, inviting pollinators and enhancing the vitality of your garden ecosystem.

Pear trees’ adaptable nature extends to their form and training. Shape them into an elegant espalier against a wall or let them grow into their natural, majestic shape. Either way, pear trees present a year-round visual treat.

Your Fruitscaping™ adventure with our Pear Trees is sure to be a rewarding one. From the planting phase through to the satisfaction of biting into a homegrown pear, this journey is filled with enjoyment, fulfillment, and life’s simple pleasures. With our Asian, Soft, and Hard Pear Trees, taste the sweet fruits of your labor and let nature’s bounty enrich your life.

Shipping Information

Before Your Plants Arrive: You can find many guides on unpacking, planting, & care, on our growing guides page.

The Journey From Our Nursery to Your Door:  We NEVER ship our plants bare root. Your plant will travel in the very container in which it was nurtured. We thoroughly prune and water them before packing, and make sure they’re well wrapped to retain moisture during transit. It’s as though you’ve personally collected them from our nursery!

Choose Your Ship Date: We understand you’ll want to be available when your plant arrives. Our checkout process features a handy calendar that allows you to choose the Monday on which you want your plant to ship. Depending on your location, you’ll likely receive your plant by Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday of that week. Once shipped, UPS will generate a tracking number and send it to the email you provided. You can then follow your plant’s journey and ensure someone is available to unpack it on arrival day.
