Planting & Care

Asian pears grow best in well-drained fertile soils with a slightly acidic pH. They require full sunlight, good air circulation and good moisture. The trees tend to be small with an upright growth habit, and are easy to espalier. Asian pear trees have fewer insect problems than other fruit trees, so they are quite easy to maintain. 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. Pruning is important to maintaining Asian pear trees; prune trees to remove crossed and upward-growing banches.
