Description
 
● Kieffer pear trees are good to be grown in USDA zones 4 through 9, making this pear tree the best variety for Preppers. Pollination is not required to set fruit; and for the Kieffer pear to set flowers leading to heavy pear yields, ripening in October through November, the number of chill hours is 400. Yields are very high per tree and can produce as many as ten bushels of fresh pears annually when in optimal conditions. Harvest these pears when they are firm and have a yellow-green color and then let stand to fully ripen. This is a hard pear–it’s like a crisp, sweet apple–and tastes great picked right off the tree. Plant your Prepping pear trees in full sun with a well-drained soil; if you soil is a compacted soil (i.e., clay) then dig your hole twice as wide as normal. This variety has been hand selected by Prepper Gardens because it is the most productive and versatile pear tree. The fruit is perfect for canning to increase shelf life, for fresh eating, or for attracting deer to be hunted for meat to last your family through the cold winter. Pear preserves are great and are another perfect way to use the abundance of pears to increase the shelf life of the fruit. In terms of food preparation for Preppers, this is an absolute key to survival; the Kieffer pear is a truly great low cost fruit tree.

● The Kieffer pear tree is an absolute can't-live-without fruit tree for your garden, because fireblight is not an issue, as it is with other pear trees.

Preserves March 3, 2014
Reviewer: Chery Luna from Reklaw, Texas  
I mixed raising, walnuts and cinnamon to pears to make an awesome preserve.  After sharing with a couple of friends, they were coming back for more.  It is a hit here in Texas and in Pennsylvania when we lived there a few years.

I did not measure anything, just used the "taste" method.
