Pear trees are favored and savored for their beautiful blooms, great oval shape and great tasting fruits.
Kieffer Pears are large yellow fruits that have a course, crisp and juicy white pulp. The Kieffer Pear Tree bears heavily in September and October, and is very hardy in zones 4-9. It is a self-pollinator, but for the best results, cross-pollination with an acceptable pear like the Bartlett should be provided. This tree likes full sun and can be planted in a wide variety of soils. These pears are perfect for sauces, juices, ciders, canning, and baking.
