Growing Information

Zone Compatibility: The Columbus Red Pear Tree thrives in USDA hardiness zones 7-10, making it an excellent choice for a wide range of climates.

Size: When mature, this pear tree reaches a height of 15-20 feet, with a similar spread, making it a manageable addition to your garden or orchard.

Chill Hours: This pear tree requires approximately 600-800 chill hours, which makes it suitable for regions with moderate to cold winters.

Planting: Plant your Columbus Red Pear Tree in well-drained soil in a sunny location. Ensure proper spacing, about 15-20 feet apart, to allow for adequate air circulation.

Pruning: Regular pruning, preferably during the dormant season, helps maintain a balanced shape and encourages healthy fruit production. Remove dead or crossing branches to ensure optimal growth.

Watering: Young trees require regular watering to establish strong roots. Once established, water deeply but infrequently, allowing the soil to dry slightly between waterings.

Fruit Description:
The Columbus Red Pear is a true marvel of nature. Its medium to large-sized fruit is distinguished by its striking crimson skin, which adds a vibrant pop of color to your garden.

Flavor: Bite into a Columbus Red Pear, and you'll be greeted by a burst of sweet, juicy flavor with a hint of tartness. It's a perfect balance that leaves your taste buds craving more.

Texture: The flesh of these pears is exceptionally smooth and buttery, providing a melt-in-your-mouth experience that is simply divine.

Color: The deep red skin of the Columbus Red Pear adds a touch of elegance to your orchard. As the fruit ripens, the color intensifies, creating a visually stunning display.

Harvest Time: Harvest your Columbus Red Pears in late summer to early fall, typically around August to September. Check for firmness and a slight yellow undertone to determine their readiness.

Pollination: Columbus Red Pear Trees are partially self-fertile, but they benefit from cross-pollination with another pear tree, such as Bartlett or Bosc, for a more bountiful harvest. Bees and other pollinators are essential to ensure successful fruit set.

The Columbus Red Pear Tree is more than just a fruit tree; it's a symbol of natural beauty and bountiful rewards. With proper care and attention to its growing needs, you'll be indulging in these delectable, ruby-hued pears straight from your garden. Don't miss out on the opportunity to enhance your outdoor space with this stunning tree that promises both visual delight and mouthwatering treats!
