Monterey Pear Tree Info and Care

Monterey Pear trees are easy to grow, vigorous, and grow upright. This tree can be pruned and kept as small as 10 ft tall and wide. However, they can grow over twice as large. Plant pear trees in the full sun or part shade. Plant trees as far apart as you intend them to grow.  In home orchards, plant trees about 10 feet apart on average to maintain a compact tree. Allow for more space if you intend them to grow larger. Prune during the winter while dormant, and thin the tree in the Summer.

Water trees regularly during the Spring to Summers growing season. Monterey pear trees are deciduous, so they become dormant in the Winter. Discontinue supplemental irrigation during their Winter dormancy.

Fertilize pear trees with organic fruit tree fertilizers. Use a humus based or bone meal fertilizer with more phosphorus and potassium in the winter to promote Spring blossoms. Provide organic fertilizers with more nitrogen such as manure or blood meal during the early Spring growing season.
