Wild pear trees will be available on April 1st.
The wild pear trees for sale are grown from seed. Therefore, each tree will be a unique and one-of-a-kind new Pear variety. These trees will all produce pears edible to a wide array of wildlife. My main focus is having a tree that supplies a fruit of size for deer. Each tree will have many variations, such as fruit size, drop times, taste, and disease resistance.
No one in the world can tell you exactly what a tree grown from seed will do. I've grown a lot of seedlings to see what kind of fruit I would get, and finally, I have a wild pear that I've grown enough to see that you will be getting some great trees! I've never offered wild pears because of the influence of Bradford across the US. I didn't want you planting "wild pears" and ending up with what will likely be tiny pea-size junk or invasive. These wild pears are different, and I wouldn't be surprised if some of the best new pear cultivars of the future are grown from these wild pear seedlings being offered.
Wild pears will reach a mature height of 20-30', growing well in almost any soil conditions other than wet soil. Like any tree grown, whether from seed or grafted, they will produce faster in more fertile soil. Yet, these pear seedlings can grow in the poorest soils with low ph and fertility. In fertile soil, you will see them produce some fruit at year 3 or 4. If you plant in very poor soil, it may be year 5 or 6. These wild pears will grow fast and have substantial size and height on the tree by this time. Wild pears are suitable for plant hardiness zone 4b-8.
Wild pears are pruned back to 2-3' well rooted with a diameter of 3/8''+ and 3-4' 1/2''+ diameter with the terminal bud attached.
