Collection: Pear Trees

Pears have a place in our cold climate growing. Unfortunately the selection is small when finding pears at your local box stores and garden centres. Common pears such as the Ure, Golden Spice and Early Gold are alright but don't have the taste, quality and storage abilities of what we want out of a pear. We propagate and sell good quality pears. Most impressive is the hardiness which these cultivators have experienced -45 Celsius. 

There is however a special way to harvesting pears. This is because they have to ripen out of the tree. If left to ripen on the tree, they will develop a mealy texture and will start to rot from the inside. While the pear still hard, take notice when the skin starts changing colour. This is when you can harvest them and store them in a cool place such as your fridge for a few days or more. When your're ready to eat some, take them out of the fridge and let them ripen at room temperature for a day or two. To assess that your pear is ripe, apply gentle pressure on the flesh just below the stem. If it is still very hard, it is not ripe yet. If it is soft but not too much, it is ready.

Pears should be planted 20 feet apart and prefer well drained fertile soil. Fruit production begins around 7 years on average for pears, we do however have some varieties which are precocious (early bearing).
