PEARS – FOR EATING OR DISTILLATION
Pears are usually grown in concentrated cultivation in regions with well-drained, humus-rich soils. Areas where late frosts are rare are preferred. Sunny locations are ideal, but heat and, above all, dryness have a negative effect on fruit formation and quality. The plant form (high-, half- or low-stemmed) is determined by the rootstock. The high-stemmed fruit trees were replaced because of easier workability and earlier yields after establishment.
