How to grow

Pears grow in a wide variety of soils, but do best in a soil enriched with decomposed compost and well-rotted manure prior to planting. Their main requirements are full sun, cool winters (600 chilling hours) and regular irrigation. Flowering a month earlier than apples, protect from frost to improve fruiting. Always plant more than one type for cross-pollination.
