Skoroplodnost - the first harvest tree gives for 3-4 years of life With a large crop of unequal weight fruit
High yield - even the first crop can be considerable - up to 15 kg Due to the fast and active growth, constant pruning is necessary.
High winter hardiness and drought resistance There are lean seasons
Scab resistance
Good commercial qualities of fruits

Location selection

Pear is a heat-loving plant, so it will grow well in a sunny area, protected from the wind. Groundwater should be approximately 1.5–2 m from the ground.The pear does not stand up for moisture.Suitable soil is loamy or sandy. Clay earth is not suitable, sandy - only when making abundant dressings.

Experienced gardeners consider the beginning of October to be the optimal time for planting.Before the winter cold, the tree will have enough time to settle down. If for some reason it was not possible to do it, the end of April will come up next year.

For planting, you need to buy in the nursery 1 - or 2-year-old seedlings.When buying, check the condition of the roots and stem - they must be strong, not dry, well developed, without damage.

Stepwise landing process

  1. Dig a hole with a diameter of 1 m, a depth of 0.5 m.
  2. Mix fertilizer (70 g of ammonium nitrate, 130–140 g of potassium sulfate, 2 buckets of humus) to fill 2/3 of the hole.

  3. Put a seedling in a hole, holding it.

    The roots of the tree in the pit need to gently straighten

  4. To maintain a young tree, strengthen the stake at a distance of 20–25 cm from the trunk.
  5. To pour a sapling with soil, carefully tamping. The root neck should not be covered with earth.

The August dew belongs to self-bearing trees, but the harvest may increase several times if a pollinator is present in the garden. The best solution will be planting a pear seedlings of the Memory of Yakovlev. The distance between fruit trees in the garden is 3–4 m.

Care for the pear Augustow dew


Water the young pear every week (1 bucket of water per tree). An adult plant is watered once every 7–10 days with 20 liters of water (this amount should be “stretched” for a whole day, for example, a bucket of water in the morning and a bucket in the evening). For the variety is suitable for spraying.Mandatory hydration in July and August is the period when the tree lays buds for the harvest of the next year.At the end of the summer, watering is stopped to slow down the growth of young shoots. They may not have enough time to get stronger before the first cold weather.

During watering you need to loosen the tree trunk, destroying weeds.

  2. During the flowering of pears in order to tied the fruit, make a 0.1 percent solution of boric acid (10 g per 10 liters of water for one tree).
  3. After the autumn leaf fall, the mixture of mineral fertilizers will contribute to the growth and development of the tree (ammonium nitrate - 20 g, urea - 15 g, superphosphate - 50 g).


Pruning is an important event in the care of all fruit trees. The first pruning August dew can survive after planting. The branches are removed at a height of about 0.5 m.

The best time for this event is spring.During this period, branches damaged by the sun or frost can be cut off, as well as branches that are too long or thicken. All sections are smeared with a twist or paint.

Autumn pruning is aimed at removing dry and old branches, which are then burned.

Preparing for the winter

In late autumn, trees are whitened with lime mortar or special paints for trees.This layer on the trunk protects the tree from sunburn of the bark, which can be in winter and spring.

If there are cold and little snowy winters in the region, the stem should be wrapped with a nonwoven covering material that allows air and moisture to pass through (agrotex, spanbond).
