Multi-Planting


  • Plant two or more in one hole

  • Make the best use of limited space

  • A great way to combine the need for a pollinator with the desire for many fruit varieties

I did the multiple planting because I don’t want too many pears at one time and I wanted to taste the different varieties. From left to right, they are 20th Century, Hosui, Shinseiki, and Shinko. The photo was taken in the Spring and all bore fruit that year, with the Hosui being the most prolific (it’s one year older). I also made certain that I had a pollenizer (the Shinseiki). I intend to keep the trees pruned low to allow for easy picking. — Stan Plog —
