Kiddie Series™ of Dwarf Flowering Pears
JUST THE RIGHT SIZE
In the pear world, the Kiddie Series™ are a milestone. Jack® and Jill™, members of the Kiddie Series™ of Dwarf Flowering pears only get ½ the size of the species!
Since callery pears are a favorite street tree, Jack® and Jill™ are a welcome alternative to other Pyrus selections. Reaching a mature height of approximately 15’, The Kiddie Series™ are the only callery pears which will fit under utility lines!
In addition, Jack® only spreads about 10’ in width. He has a tight, compact branching structure, pyramidal form and a dense habit that make it appear it has been trimmed. In fact, unlike other pears, Jack® is a Streamlined Care Free Maintenance™ trees which means it needs no pruning to maintain its form. This means a savings of both time and labor for both home owners and municipalities.
Now Jack®’s sister Jill™ is a little rounder in habit reaching a width around 15’. It has more open branch scaffolding and smaller, oblong shape, olive green toned foliage. She does have the prettiest pear fruit we’ve observed but her fruit is sparse.
One of the best assets of this series is they are both fireblight resistant! Jack® and Jill™ are hardy to U.S.D.A. Zone 4 and can bring beautiful spring flowers and lush summer foliage to even the smallest tree areas.
