Pear Seeds - Asian Pear

(Pyrus pyrifolia) Zones 6 - 8. Small, pear tree.

Three words: Home. Grown. Candy.

Asian Pears are DELICIOUS, but you know, I didn't really care for them until our trees (reluctantly planted) started producing. Now they are some the most productive trees in our orchard and the fruit we wait for the most. 

If you haven't tried an Asian Pear before, they are quite different from European varieties. They are crisp, juicy, flowery and sweet. There is just no comparison. If you have tried ones from the grocery store, you'll note that they are only shadow of what I have just described. Gotta be home grown!

- Soak Seeds 24 hrs. Follow 90 days cold, moist stratification. For more information on stratification, check out our article "How To Stratify Your Tree Seeds".

*If you are doing the cold period in your fridge, please check on your seeds. 90 days is an estimate & they may sprout sooner.*

- Plant stratified seeds in pots or a nursery bed using standard potting soil. Heat mats are NOT required & can hinder germination!

- Protect young tree seedlings from slugs, cutworms & rodents. Slugs especially can eat primary leaves as soon as they come up, so be vigilant!
