Anjou Pear Tree: Pyrus communis - 20 Inch Pot - 10+ Foot Tall
Anjou Pear is a versatile fruit tree that produces medium to large greenish-yellow pears with a sweet and juicy flesh. It is a reliable and productive variety.
Caring for Anjou pears involves providing them with the right growing conditions and regular maintenance. Anjou pears thrive in full sun and well-drained soil. Plant them in a location that receives at least 6 hours of direct sunlight per day. Water the tree deeply and regularly, especially during dry periods, to keep the soil consistently moist. Mulching around the base of the tree helps retain moisture and suppress weeds. Prune the tree in late winter or early spring to shape it and remove any dead or diseased branches. Thin the fruit clusters during the growing season to ensure larger, healthier pears. Fertilize the tree in early spring with a balanced fertilizer to promote healthy growth and fruit production. Anjou pears are generally resistant to pests and diseases but monitor for any signs of trouble. With proper care, your Anjou pear tree will reward you with a bountiful harvest of sweet and juicy pears, adding beauty and deliciousness to your garden or orchard.
