The Orient Pear Tree produces juicy, sweet, creamy-fleshed, round, yellow pears that are great for cooking, canning, baking, eating fresh, or for use in desserts and drinks. The trees grow to a size of 20 feet high and 15 to 20 feet wide. Orient Pear Trees are fast growing, and a healthy tree with ample sun and nutrition can easily grow up to 2 feet of height per year. They do best in full sun where the tree can get 6 hours or more of direct light per day.
Orient Pear Trees are suited to grow in the ground within USDA Zones 5 to 8. They prefer slightly acidic, well drained soil that is rich in organic matter. The Orient Pear Tree is sensitive to salt or salt-air, and as such is not the first choice for growing in coastal areas. However the Orient Pear Tree is able to tolerate short periods of drought and even brief flooding. This is a heavy bearer that delivers ripe fruit in late summer and early fall.
