EARLY BOW PEAR™
This grafted pear tree is named Early Bow. The original tree grows next to an old stone foundation and may have been planted in what was the yard of the old homestead. Whether this tree was a grafted variety planted many years ago or grew from a seedling, I’m not certain. What I do know is that this tree will produce medium size, bell shaped pear that begins turning yellow and sweet in mid-September. It begins dropping free from the tree with most of the fruit hitting the ground the last week in September and through mid- October.
They will visit this tree on a regularly keeping all the drops cleaned up nightly. This tree is a vigorous grower with zero signs of fire blight ever being in this tree. This tree has only ever received -11 degrees placing this tree in Plant Hardiness zone 6 – 9
The Early Bow 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.
2-3′ ( 3/8” dia.) These trees will have a good root system. They will be whips around 3′ high with a trunk diameter of 3/8”.
3-5′ ( 1/2” dia.) These trees will have a good root system with some possible branching but will mainly be whips. They will range in height between 3′ to 5′ with a trunk diameter of around a 1/2”.
4-6′ (+ 1/2” dia.) These trees will have an extensive root system and typically having multiple branches but many will be solid whips. They will range in height between 4′ and 6′ with a trunk diameter of 1/2” to 3/4”.
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 4b – 8.
PLANTING INSTRUCTIONS FOR EARLY BOW PEAR™
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.
