20th Century Asian Pear Tree Care and Information

The 20th Century Asian Pear tree is a woody deciduous tree. An easy to grow a tree with beautiful heart shaped leaves. Grown as a dwarf, semi-dwarf, and standard form.

Pear Tree Sun exposure and Size

Plant in full sun. A Pear tree can grow to 20 feet tall, but easily prune to keep 10 – 15 feet tall.  Plant trees as close as 8- 10 feet apart, but allow for more space if you intend the tree to grow wider.

How To Water, Fertilize, and Prune Pear Trees

Water your pear tree deep but not too frequent. Plant in good soil that drains well. Create a berm around the drip zone. This ensures the trees have a good watering well around the roots to collect water. Water new trees regularly, about 1-2 times per week during the Spring growth season. Increase the frequency to 2-3 times per week during the hot summer. As the weather cools in the Fall, reduce the frequency of irrigation back down to once per week. Discontinue water during the winter while the tree is dormant.

Fertilize your pear tree in the Spring with a balance organic fruit tree fertilizer with a 1-1-1 or a 2-1-1 NPK ratio, such as (5-5-5)or (6-3-3). Manure can be applied in cool climates. Reapply growth formula fertilizer in the Summer. Do not fertilize in the Fall as this the time the tree has slowed growth. Apply a fertilizer with low nitrogen and high phosphorus and potassium with a 1-2-2 or 1-4-4 NPK ratio such as 4-12-12 analysis.

Prune pear trees in the winter while dormant. Cut the tip to prevent it from becoming too tall and promote side branches from growing. Remove any new growth below the graft, low in the branches towards the center of the trees, and crossing towards the wrong direction. Thin your tree in the summer to remove dry twigs, water sprouts, too many fruits to direct desired growth.

Pear Pest Management

Use a dormant fruit tree spray / horticultural oil in the winter. To protect the harvest use an animal repellant. Also, cover the fruits or net the entire tree to create a barrier.
