Shenandoah Pear Tree


The Shenandoah Pear Tree is renowned for producing large, sweet, and aromatic pears, flourishing with an upright growth, stunning spring blossoms, and requiring full sun, fertile soil, and a pollinator nearby for a successful harvest. Its hardiness across diverse climates and straightforward care requirements make it an excellent choice for gardeners looking to enjoy both the tree’s ornamental beauty and its delicious fruits.

General Tree Height/Caliper: Most of our fruit trees (apple, peach, apricot, plum, pear, nectarine, quince, and cherry) are grafted/budded and are 4-6' tall with a caliper/diameter of about 1/4-3/4". Most have more than 5' height and 1/2" diameter. The other trees are seedlings, such as pawpaw, mulberry, persimmon, shade, berry, and flowering trees which range from 18-36" tall.

A rootstock primarily controls a tree's size and how early it bears fruit. Learn more about our specific rootstocks.
