Manufacturer Description

Pears tolerate heavy, poorly drained soils better than most tree fruits. However, productivity is best on deep, well-drained loams with pH 6-7. Pears have very similar climatic requirements to apples, but are much more prone to fire blight and therefore cannot tolerate humid, wet springs. Pears require chill hours to break dormancy, although some low chill cultivars exist and many Asian pears have lower chill requirements and can be grown as far south as northern Florida. Pears have similar or slightly lower cold hardiness than apples, tolerating -10 to -20 F. Pears bloom 1-3 weeks before apple and are therefore prone to frost damage in most regions. Pears mature in as little as 90 days, or as long as 200 days. Bartlett Pears are referred to as "summer pears" since they ripen in July - August in California.
