Kieffer Pear Tree

The Kieffer Pear Tree (Pyrus communis 'Kieffer') is a popular choice for home gardeners because it is relatively easy to care for, produces a large quantity of fruit, and is resistant to fire blight. It is also a good choice for commercial growers because the fruit is well suited for shipping and storage.

Kieffer Pear Trees can grow up to 20-30 feet tall and 10-15 feet wide. They have a vigorous habit and are covered in dark green leaves. In the spring, the tree produces clusters of white flowers. The flowers are followed by medium to large, yellow pears that ripen in the late fall.

Kieffer pears are known for their firm flesh and sweet-tart flavor. They are typically eaten cooked, as they can be quite tart when eaten fresh. Kieffer pears are often used in pies, cobblers, and other desserts. They are also a good source of vitamins and minerals, including vitamin C, potassium, and fiber.

To grow a Kieffer Pear Tree, choose a spot in full sun with well-drained soil. Plant the tree in the spring or fall. Water the tree regularly, especially during the first year after planting. Fertilize the tree in the spring with a balanced fertilizer.

Kieffer Pear Trees are relatively low-maintenance, but they do require some pruning. Prune the tree in the late winter or early spring to remove any dead or diseased branches, and to shape the plant.

Kieffer Pear Trees are a beautiful and productive addition to any landscape. They are also a good source of vitamins and minerals.

Here are some tips for growing a Kieffer Pear Tree:

  • Choose a spot in full sun with well-drained soil.
  • Plant the tree in the spring or fall.
  • Water the tree regularly, especially during the first year after planting.
  • Fertilize the tree in the spring with a balanced fertilizer.

Note
Please note that the plant will be shipped in its pot, securely fastened with multiple layers of clear tape to prevent any shifting or damage during transit. This ensures that the plant arrives to you with minimal damage, safely and securely. We have been employing this method for shipping plants for several years, occasionally using smaller pots for added safety and convenience during transit. It's important to understand that many plants enter a dormant state during the fall and winter months, resulting in the loss of most leaves and appearing dry or lifeless. This is a natural process, and come springtime, they will begin to regrow and thrive once again. Please be aware that due to regulations set by the Department of Agriculture, there are certain plants and sizes that we are unable to ship to California. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
