Gardeners' Notes:

Neutral vossner On Apr 7, 2013, vossner from Richmond, TX (Zone 9a) wrote:

Rating neutral as new in our garden, having been planted Fall 2012. However, this is the third variety we have planted that has not succumbed to blight. I have been cautious not to overwater and believe this is why it is doing well. Needs a pollinator and will likely plant one in fall 2013.

Acres Homes Pear is precocious, bearing at about 3 years, like Spaulding. It has a naturally spreading shape. The chill hour requirement is only 300 to 350, which is perfect for metro-Houston. Acres Home occasionally gets some fire blight but it does not seem to descend down the limb, which is good. The Acres Home fruit is very large with a traditional pear shape and with a red blush on the exposed side. It bears heavily every year. Acres Home is the nicest landscape tree. Pollinate with Southern Queen, Southern Bartlett, Meadows and Tennessee. An outstanding pear for the Houston area.
