Pear and Apple Trees - Knowledgebase Question

Question by dbwbsblb

I just planted 2 yellow delicious apple trees and would like to plant 2 pear trees. Is it ok to plant them in the same area as the apple trees, keeping 20 ft between trees or will this still cause a problem with how they produce fruit?

As long as you keep your trees 20' apart they will all have the opportunity to grow without being overcrowded. The apples and the pears won't mind growing near one another so plant your trees in the same general area. Enjoy your harvest!
