Where should I plant a pear tree?
When picking a location for your tree, try to find a well-drained area with sandy loam soil. This is the best for pears, but as long as there is good drainage your tree should thrive. Place your tree in full sun for the best growth and production rate. Avoid frost pockets- trees may be damaged by unseasonable frosts.
Can you grow pear trees in pots?
If you want to grow a pear in a container you must choose one that has been specially grown for it. Pear trees are not grown on their own roots. Therefore, when you are choosing a pear for a container you must make sure it is grafted onto a container rootstock. Look out for rootstocks called ‘Quince C’ for a container.

How can you tell if a pear tree is male or female?
If a tree is dioecious it only has male or female parts, not both. If a tree is male and contains flowers, then it has male flowers and produces pollen. Meanwhile, if a tree is female and contains flowers, then it has female flowers and produces fruit.
Do you need to plant pear trees in pairs?
You have to plant at least two varieties of pear trees, to ensure cross-pollination and fruit production. The trees should be spaced 15-20 feet apart when planted.
