Pear blossoms are sensitive to frost injury. Avoid planting the trees in frost pockets. Mulching with wood mulch can help to insulate the soil, leading to a slow, gradual warming and preventing premature bud break. Pears are best harvested before they are mature but not yet fully ripe. Mature pears are firm and will easily come off the branch when they are twisted upwards. Harvested pears will ripen fully off the tree when stored during a week of temperatures in the 60s.


The species of pears you select is important. Many of us are familiar with the ‘Bartlett’ pear (Pyrus communis). These varieties with relatively large, teardrop-shaped fruits will not be hardy in the northern part of our state. Ussurian pears (Pyrus ussuriensis), which include ‘Ure’ and ‘Golden Spice’ are hardier.
