This grafted pear tree produces a dessert quality pear that begins dropping the beginning of September and pretty much finishes dropping by the end of September. Because of the drop timing, this is an early fall draw when bachelor groups of bucks are dispersing to their fall ranges or for states where bow season begins in September. The Ayer’s pear produces consistent annual crops. Pear trees are the perfect fruit tree for tree food plots in acidic soil. This tree is very vigorous with resistance to fireblight making this commercial variety a good choice for your wildlife planting. Hardiness zones 5 – 8
The Ayer’s Pear is made by using plant tissue from the original tree and attaching it to the new roots. This is essentially giving you an identical tree of the one you see in the picture and description.
4-6′ (+ 1/2” dia.) These trees will have an extensive root system and typically having multiple branches. They will range in height between 4′ and 6′ with a diameter of 1/2” to 3/4”. Shipping height will be between 4′ and 6′ as 15 trees or less fills into a 5′ box these will be pruned. While 15 to 30 trees fills into a 6′ box these.
3-5′ (- 1/2” dia.) These trees will have a good root system with some possible branching. They will range in height between 3′ to 5′ with a diameter of 3/8” to 1/2”.
STANDARD ROOTSTOCK (Pyrus Betulifolia)
A vigorous, standard-sized rootstock (20-30 feet high) that is adaptable to acidic soils, poor soil conditions and fertility. Produces a strong well anchored tree, that performs well in heavy soils. As a result, it will be good for more marginal areas like wooded food plots, reclaimed land, shale mountain soil, dryer uplands and ridges as well as tolerating more moist soils. We are only selecting the most vigorous standard rootstock to graft onto. This rootstock is cold hardy zones 4 – 8.
Plant at least 2 different pear varieties within close proximity to each other to ensure pollination. The varieties of grafted pears we have for sale will blossom and overlap each other giving you excellent pollination. The Danville Kieffer pear tree is an excellent pollinator for both Asian and European varieties of pears.
Plant all pear trees in moist, well drained soil with a soil ph between 5.5 – 7.2 with adequate nutrient levels for optimal growth. The above soil conditions will provide the most growth and fruit production. Pears are one fruit tree which will also tolerate acidic soils with poor fertility. A fruit tree requires at least 6 hours of sunlight for fruit production and growth. Space trees 20′ apart and use cages of at least 5’ to protect your trees. This will ensure your deer eat your fruit in a few years and not your trees this year.
If you are picking up your trees, typically the 1st week in April is best as weather allows in your area and mine. I will generally begin shipping to Hardiness zone 6 (southern states) and farther south the 1st week in April as the weather allows me too. For Hardiness zones 5 and colder I will generally ship the 2nd to the 3rd week in April as your weather allows.
