Planting & Care
Planting: Dig a hole twice the size and just as deep as the root ball. After the hole is dug, carefully loosen the roots and set your tree in the hole, keeping the trunk straight. Backfill in the hole completely and gently remove air pockets that may have formed by tamping down with a spade. Water the tree thoroughly after the tree has been planted.
Watering: Water your Pear Tree as necessary, giving it at least 1 or 2 inches of water once a week. When the weather gets hot and dry during the peak of summer, increase the amount of water to maintain proper hydration and moisture. Do not water your Pear Tree after the first frost in the fall. You should resume watering once the last frost has passed in spring.
Pruning: When pruning, it’s important to trim the Pear Tree's central leader to promote upright growth. If there are any competing branches present, remove them so that multiple leaders do not form. Maintain the tree’s natural shape by pruning any large, lateral branches. Dead, dying, or wilted branches should always be removed to help the 20th Century Asian Pear Tree focus its energy on growing healthy and producing an abundance of fruit.
