What does a pear tree blossom look like?

Pear blooms first appear as little, oval-to-oblong, firmly closed green buds on the dark brown branches of the pear tree. As the temperature warms up in the spring, the buds uncurl, revealing broad and flat white petals. Each petal has a soft, smooth, and velvety feel with a delicate, slightly wavy look. The flowers last about four days. After they fall off the branch, new buds develop, which again turn into flowers.

The pear is one of the most important fruit trees in the world. There are several different species of pears grown for food, but only two or three of them are used for timber. The other members of this family are apples, quinces, and medlar trees.

Pears are deciduous trees that grow in temperate climates. They need at least six hours of sunlight a day to thrive and can tolerate moderate temperatures, but not cold weather. Pears do best in soil that is rich in nutrients and doesn't contain much calcium carbonate (such as chalk soil). However, even though pears require some heat to grow, they will not bloom or produce fruits in freezing temperatures.

Pears are valuable not only because of their delicious fruit but also because they provide lumber, syrup, and brandy. In fact, the pear is one of the main sources of income for many farmers in China and Japan. Fruit from pear trees can be eaten fresh or made into jellies, pies, and wines.

Does a flowering pear tree produce fruit?

Ornamental flowering pear trees (Pyrus calleryana) are popular because of their brilliant blossoms in the spring and stunning leaf color as the temperature cools. They are quite easy to care for because they are not planted for fruit. The flowers will eventually fall off the tree due to age or disease but new ones will appear next year from fresh seed. However, since this is an ornamental species, be sure to check with your local government about planting it in your area because some varieties may be illegal to distribute without a license.

In fact, most flowering pears don't produce fruit but rather attract insects that in turn pollinate the plants. The fruit produced by some species of flowering pear do contain seeds but they are so small that humans cannot eat them. Also, since these are ornamental trees, it is not recommended to eat their fruits.

The flowering pear has white flowers followed by greenish-yellow leaves. The fruit is egg-shaped with a protruding neck. It contains a single seed which falls off when ripe.

There are several varieties of flowering pears sold under different names worldwide. Not all varieties will flower every year and those that do tend to bloom early or late in the season.

These trees are very sensitive to cold temperatures and should never be planted near a foundation or underground barrier.

Is there a fruitless pear tree?

The Callery pear, also known as an elegant fruitless pear tree, is the most common decorative pear tree. Although all blooming pear trees, including Pyrus calleryana, bear fruit, the pears on decorative pear trees are too small to be useful. However, since they bloom very early in spring and late in fall, they provide color for early and late seasons, respectively.

This tree grows best in well-drained soil with some organic matter added. It requires full sun and a warm climate but will tolerate some frost. The Callery pear does not do well in wet conditions; if it gets water logged during rainy periods, the trunk will grow wide and the branches will droop. For this reason, this tree is not recommended for planting in ponds or other water-based gardens.

These trees are grown for their attractive flowers rather than their fruit. The flower buds usually appear in clusters at the ends of the branches in early spring. The flowers open white then turn pink before falling off. The foliage changes color too: green in winter, red in fall.

Since these trees are not cultivated for its fruit, they can't be forced. They must pollinate themselves because no insects visit their flowers. The fruit develops within the cluster of buds next year after flowering. The Callery pear can be pruned regularly to keep it at a reasonable size.
