Korean Giant

TomAndJerryGardenerAugust 12, 2013

I want to grow a Korean Giant Pear tree also known as Dan Bae. I was wondering how it would pollinate. I do already have a pear tree but it is American. Also how long will it take before it bears fruit ?
Also when will I receive it? And can i just replant a store bought Korean Giants seed.

Plant bare root next spring about Febr in KS. You should get fruit starting about year 3 maybe 4. I'm not sure if KG is self fertile but probably is.

Some say Asian pear can cross pollinate with other pears as long as they bloom at the same time. With the ridiculous amout of fruit that a KG sets, I don't think pollination would be an issue.

I don't know what zone Tom is in. Mine is 6 a. I usually ask a nursery to send me bare root trees around mid April. Most years, by then, snow is gone and soil is softer in my area . I don't like digging hard dirt (and rock) in freezing weather!!
