Pears Planting and Maintenance:

As long as you are committed to the attention to detail and pest management that the crop require, pears are excellent candidates for your home garden. Pears share many cultural similarities and pest problems with apples. They are botanically grouped with apples and are collectively called 'pome fruits'.
