From the sweet and juicy Bartlett to the crisp and crunchy Comice, there is a pear variety to suit every taste.

Pears can be used in many different recipes: Pears are a versatile fruit that can be used in a variety of sweet and savory dishes. From poached pears to pear tarts, the possibilities are endless.

Pollination of European Pear Tree (2-3 Foot) (Pyrus communis):

Pyrus communis, or the Common Pear, is typically self-sterile, meaning that it requires cross-pollination from another pear variety in order to produce fruit. Some cultivars are self-fertile and do not require another tree for pollination, but having another variety nearby will still result in increased fruit production. The flowers of the Common Pear are typically pollinated by insects, such as bees, and wind. To ensure successful pollination and fruit set, it is recommended to plant two or more different cultivars in close proximity to each other.


It is generally recommended to wait to fertilize a bare root plant until it has been established in the ground and is actively growing. This can vary depending on the type of plant and the growing conditions, but it is generally best to wait at least a few weeks to a few months after planting.

During the first year, you should focus on providing the plant with the right amount of water, sunlight and soil to help it become established. Once the plant has become established and is actively growing, you can begin to fertilize it.

You can use a balanced, all-purpose fertilizer or one that is specifically formulated for the type of plant you have. Be sure to follow the instructions on the fertilizer package and apply it at the recommended rate.

It is also important to note that over-fertilizing can be harmful to plants, so it's always best to error on the side of caution and start with a lower amount of fertilizer and increase as needed.
