Tree Details

Our pear trees for sale include both European and Asian varieties. Moreover our bareroot pear trees are 1-2 years old, 4′-6′ tall, and have an average caliper/diameter of ½”. In fact, pear trees, except for seedlings, have two parts. The first part is the scion which is above the ground and responsible for the fruit’s characteristics and disease resistance. And secondly, the rootstock, which is under the ground and responsible for the size, cold hardiness, and partly the disease resistance. We grow our pear trees on Betulaefolia (grow standard trees around 20ft), OHxF97 (grow trees 70-90% of a standard tree size), and OHxF87 (grow trees around 2/3rd of a standard tree size) rootstocks.

Homer referred to pears in the Odyssey as the “gift of the gods” and it surely is a gift to grow pear trees. People domesticated pear trees in two places, China and Asia Minor (home of many Armenians) until the Middle East. In fact our collection of pear trees for sale include Asian and European varieties selected for their unique tastes and stories.

If you would like to find the relevant information you need on hardiness zones, pollination, disease resistance, and more, you can see our tree descriptions. Additionally, you can also search and filter by tree characteristics.
