Callery Pear

The Callery pear tree is a deciduous ornamental pear tree from China and Vietnam. It has oval leaves, and clusters of white flowers with 5 petals in early Spring. The fruits of the Callery pear are small (less than one cm in diameter) and hard, and are eaten by birds after the frost has softened the fruit.. The foliage gives great Autumn colour, provided frost doesn't kill the leaves before the colour develops.

The Callery pear tree is a deciduous ornamental pear tree from China and Vietnam. It has oval leaves, and clusters of white flowers with 5 petals in early Spring. The fruits of the Callery pear are small (less than one cm in diameter) and hard, and are eaten by birds after the frost has softened the fruit.. The foliage gives great Autumn colour, provided frost doesn't kill the leaves before the colour develops.


Flowering

From Early Spring TO Mid Spring

Pear trees flower in Spring. If frost is likely to occur, while the tree is in blossom, protect it with horticultural fleece, otherwise the fruit may not set.

 

Planting

From Late Winter TO Early Spring

When preparing the plant a pear tree, choose a sunny, sheltered, free-draining site, and dig a hole the depth of the roots and 3 times bigger in circumference than the root system. When planting the tree, tease out the roots and spread them across the dug hole, before back-filling, and then watering thoroughly..
