Buy a pear tree – tasty varieties in the Lubera shop

Pears are one of the most popular types of fruit, along with apples, cherries and plums. The flesh is sweet and mild, and as a fruit the pear not only tastes good to adults, but it is also the perfect treat for children. Pears are also excellent as a school breakfast.

Pear trees grow traditionally in orchards and large gardens. Botanically speaking, the pear is the species Pyrus communis, i.e. the common pear. It is also known as the “cultivated pear” because it has been domesticated for a long time, at least since ancient times. No wonder that breeders have had a lot of time to grow particularly tasty, large and sweet pears. Today's pear grower is therefore spoilt for choice. But this agony can be eliminated with the Lubera range. In our garden shop you can buy various types of pear tree plants: from classics and specialities to columnar pears and mini pear trees. But of course the first thing to do before you buy a pear tree is to find out which one fits best into your garden – the Lubera team is ready to help you!

Pear trees – the fruit tree classics

Pear tree plants are freestanding fruit trees that can grow as a small tree or as a standard depending on the variety. Under ideal conditions, pear trees can reach a stately height of up to 20 metres, but this is rather the exception. The grafting rootstock is the most important factor for size growth. Like most fruit trees, pear tree plants are only available as grafted trees. Other pear varieties are needed for pollination, so it is advisable to buy and plant two pear tree plants at once.

Planting pear trees – the location

Pear trees need a sunny and warm place in a protected location. Surrounding shrubs and hedges also please birds, which like to choose pear trees for their nest-building. Therefore, pear tree plants have the reputation of being bird protection trees. Pear trees thrive best in a nutrient-rich, deep soil. As there are many different forms of growth, there is a suitable pear tree for every garden location in the Lubera range. Take advantage of this when you buy a pear tree!

The planting

Pear trees can be planted in the spring or autumn. It is ideal to plant them in autumn because then the tree has time to take root and can sprout new leaves and flowers the following spring. Since Lubera pear tree plants are delivered in pots, planting them is not a problem. First the root ball should be watered by dipping it into a large bucket or tub. While the root ball is soaking up water, the planting hole can be dug out. Here, care should be taken to ensure that the soil is permeable. If there is a solid layer of clay, it should be pushed through. Then the root ball can be inserted. In order to give the pear tree plants support, a stake should be planted with the pear tree trunk. Fill up the planting hole with crumbly soil and then firmly press into place. After planting, it is important to water the pear tree plant every day for about a week.

Pruning pear trees

Pruning pear tree plants is challenging for many gardeners. But it doesn't have to be. The important thing is that young pear tree plants are brought up to bear fruit in abundance. This means that regular pruning is necessary in the first few years. In the case of pears, the branches are cut back by about 30%. The framework of the tree consists of a vertical main shoot and three to four secondary shoots that grow high at an angle. This blog article from Markus Kobelt informs you how to train and prune pear trees correctly.
