About Kieffer Pear:
Kieffer is one of the latest ripening/dropping Pear along with Hybrid Pear we grow. We commonly find fruit still in the trees some years as late as December. Additionally, it’s the best self pollinating pear ever! These trees can be in the middle of nowhere and will still have great fruit sets. Kieffer is also a very good tasting Pear fresh off the tree if you like crunchy, but when left on the counter for 7-10 days develop a sweet soft juicy dessert pear profile. Note: Grafted Selection recommended if purchasing for human consumption as the taste can’t be relied upon from seedlings. Grafted Selections will also fruit 1-2 years sooner than non-grafted trees (seedlings.)
