Kieffer Pear Trees are easy to grow for several reasons. The trees are tolerant of both very cold winters and hot summers, they can take brief stretches of drought, and they are resistant to many pests and diseases that can affect other fruit trees. Mature Kieffer Pear Trees grow to twenty-five feet tall and fifteen to twenty feet wide. Their fruit is large, yellow, crisp, and juicy. The Kieffer Pear is a high quality fruit that is good for eating fresh or cooking.
The recommended areas for growing a Kieffer Pear Tree are within USDA Zones 4 to 9. This makes them great for warm areas such as the southern U.S. Kieffer Pear Trees prefer direct sunlight, rich but well-drained soil, and periodic water. The trees bloom in spring and the delicious yellow pears are ripe in October.
