European pears are late blooming, tolerant of heavy wet soils, and a good choice for many areas. Susceptible to codling moth and some to fire blight. Plant at least two varieties for best results. Harvest 3rd year. On OHxF333 semi-dwarf rootstock. Trees left unpruned reach 2/3 of standard (about 12-18'). By pruning, keep any tree to any size.

Please Note: Although most of our bare-root trees arrive to our warehouse in mid-December, there are a few varieties -- Mulberry, Pecan, Persimmon, Quince, and Walnut -- that will not arrive until mid-January. If you order any of those varieties along with varieties that arrive in mid-December, your order will be delayed for shipment until mid-January unless you ask us to split your shipments and agree to pay any additional shipping charges resulting from two separate shipments.
