HARROW SWEET PEAR
This grafted pear tree produces a sweet, juicy pear with excellent flavor. Harrow Sweet Pears have a drop time throughout October. It produces a similar Bartlett-sized, yellow with red blush and some russeting on the fruit. This pear has good resistance to fireblight in a no-spray situation.

Harrow Sweet Pear will reach a mature height of 20’+. Suitable for plant hardiness zones 4b-7.
The Harrow Sweet Pear is made by using plant tissue from the original tree and attaching it to the new roots. This essentially gives you an identical tree to the one you see in the picture and description. The price includes a 1.75 royalty.
2-yr 4-6′ (5/8”-3/4” dia.) These two-year-old trees will have an extensive root system and will have multiple branches with a diameter of 5/8” and greater. We will be pruning the trees back to a shipping height of 66” with the roots shipping. Our largest box is 66″x 14″x 15″ and will hold 15 of the 2-yr trees. Free local pick-up is open to the surrounding states of Pennsylvania. If you pick your trees up, you will receive a tree in that 6 – 7′ range. For larger orders and traveling from beyond bordering states, contact us at Ryan@bluehillwildlifenursery.com.
Harrow Sweet pear is grafted to a vigorous, standard-sized rootstock that will reach a mature height of 20′-30′. This will give you more fruit on the tree and take up less real estate. This root is adaptable to acidic soils, poor soil conditions, sandy soils, and soil with low fertility. As a result, it will be suitable for more marginal areas that were wooded and are now food plots, reclaimed land, shale mountain soil, dryer uplands, and sandy soils. Obviously, with that said, this rootstock will perform exceptionally well when planted in appropriate ph and nutrient-rich soils!
You should perform a soil test and make the correct amendments to your soil for optimal growth and fruit production, as low fertility will cause a delay in fruit production. The roots will anchor well, producing a solid and drought-tolerant tree because of the deep “real roots”. We are only grafting onto the most vigorous standard rootstock. This rootstock is cold, hardy zones 4b – 8.
PLANTING INSTRUCTIONS FOR HARROW SWEET PEARS
Plant at least two different pear varieties near 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 that tolerates acidic soils with poor fertility. Harrow Sweet pears require 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, not your trees this year.
Shipping to Plant Hardiness zones 2 – 8 will begin again in mid-March on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays (you select your ship date) and continue until the last Monday in April. Dormant bare-root trees must be planted in the spring, while trees in your area remain dormant. You can select your ship date as you checkout on the website. If you are picking up your trees, typically, the last week in March or the first week in April is perfect for planting in Pennsylvania. We have opened up the free local pick-up to the surrounding states as it could be more cost-effective if you order more than 30 trees. You can select your pick-up date on the website as you checkout. Please call or message us to make an appointment to pick up your trees if you can not make the date you selected.
