Unusual bronzy-yellow orbs dangle from this glossy-leafed tree, making the Oriental Asian Pear (Pyrus pyrifolia) such a sight to behold! Having all the wonderful landscape value as a spring flowering tree, it's also a beautiful shade tree and winter interest as well!
Covered with white blossoms in the spring, the blooms attract a host of pollinators. Pear trees have deep-green leaves with delicate toothy edges, offering summer shade with their pleasing oval form in the landscape!
Burnished yellow with speckled skin when ripe, these round fruits are smooth and thick-skinned. The white, creamy flesh is silky with a mild, sweet flavor! A fantastic pear for cooking, sliced fresh into your fruit salad or onto your breakfast cereal.
Fall brings a color display to your garden as the foliage takes on autumn hues of reds, burgundy and a touch of purples. Dropping the leaves in winter to display the handsome bark and branching structure!
Forming a handsome tree at maturity, these are fantastic ornamentals. Sized to perfectly fit into any sized yard or home orchard, you can prune these smaller yet to shade patios and seating areas. Orient is self-fertile but does best with a pollinator partner such as another Asian Pear.
#ProPlantTips for Care:
Best in deep, fertile, sandy loam, well-drained soils, Pears will grow in many soil types as long as good drainage is provided. A generous layer of mulch helps retain soil moisture as well as insulate the root system from heat and chill.

Nature Hills Nursery sells fruit trees with mature root systems, and will often set fruit in their second or third years.
Pear trees are moderate growth rate plants and can add 12-18 inches and more per year in optimal conditions once they have established.
Pear trees grow best in well-drained, fertile soil in at least 6 hours of full sun per day or more.
All Pyrus varieties have different requirements to set fruit. While a few varieties are self-fertile but will always have a larger harvest with a pollination partner. Oriental Asian (Pyrus pyrifolia) is self-fruiting and doesn't need a pollinating partner, but will bear more fruit when paired with another pear tree.
No room? Look into High-Density Planting techniques, or choose a semi-dwarf or dwarf fruit tree.
Bareroot Pear trees are best planted in the spring but container-grown Pear trees can be successfully transplanted all throughout the growing season as long as the ground isn’t frozen and they are carefully watered as needed. Check for first and last frost dates for your area with your local County Extension Office.
Oriental Asian pears are typically ready to harvest in August and September.
