Planting & Care

Asian pears grow best in full-sun on well-drained fertile soils with a slightly acidic pH. Asian Pears require full sunlight and good moisture. The trees tend to be small with an upright growth habit, and are easy to espalier. Other Asian pears are partially self-fertile so you can grow with just one tree, although two trees will produce more fruit. The trees tend to set more fruit than they can support. When fruits are the size of a cherry, thin to one fruit per cluster spaced 6" apart. Prune Asian pear trees as you would European pears in the Winter.
