Pears probably came to the new world with the first settlers on the east coast, and spread westward with pioneers.When moved to the Pacific northwest in the 1800s, European pears were able to escape fire blight, a serious bacterial disease that limited pear cultivation in the east.
Propagation Standard sized pears are chip or t-budded onto compatible rootstocks like most tree fruits.
Asian pears moved from China to Japan, Korea, and Taiwan, where they are cultivated commercially today.
