Need help choosing the right varieties of Pear trees?

This is the fun part. There are lots of selections of pear trees, each with their own fruit color, flavor, ripening time, and more. What really determines the type you should choose is how you want to use them. Most are good for snacking. Others are great for desserts, canning, dried fruits, making jam, jelly, and preserves, and salads. So do a little homework, and click on the link below to use the Pear Tree Information Sheet to help make your selections.

More about Kieffer Pear...

Kiefer produces heavy crops of pears that are excellent for making pear preserves and pear honey.  Contrary to what some online nurseries might say, Kieffer pear is not that good for fresh eating. Kieffers are drier pears than the Orients, so each makes up for the other’s shortcomings. The trees are highly resistant to fire blight. The hard-as-a-rock Kieffers may not be as highly regarded by pear lovers as the Bartletts, but they’re survivors and they produce where others will not. We have never seen a Kieffer tree with fire blight.
