    My Asian pear grown indoors from seed is now 2 ft. tall
    I like planting any kind of seeds indoors.
    Still in a pot but now outdoors, for the summer.
    The trees looks good.
    I there any one who tried to plant this type of tree outdoors,
    Especially in Ontario Canada?
    More like in places, where winter sometimes hits hard.
    Thanks,
    Homestaymom

    My sis-in-l planted one outdoor this summer. We do not have hard winter here but sometimes it drops low.

    Read about hardiness and Asian pears in James Beutel's Asian Pears from "Advances in New Crops" posted online by Purdue Univ.

    In short, it might be possible if your area can grow Bosc pears and you have the proper rootstock. Seed-grown will almost certainly not have a chance outdoors anywhere in Canada.

    Hello Palustris,
    Thanks for the info.
    As of now my Asian Pear tree are now les than 3 feet,
    it's only one year old. still in a pot, outdoor.
    Now that I that you told me that your Asian Pear tree survived in Quebec's cold
    winter, I will plant my tree in Ontario.
    My Ontario Asian Pear will email your Asian Pear and say how dee.
    Thanks,
    Homestaymom

    I realize that this thread is several years old, but I have a very small asian pear seedling. I was wondering how your larger plants have fared being outside over the cold Ontario/Quebec winters? Also, have your plants produced any fruit?
