Espalier is a method of training trees or shrubs against a wall, fence, or trellis, where they’re pruned and trained to grow in a two-dimensional, flattened form. If you are growing espalier pear trees along a wall or fence, plant your trees some 6 to 10 inches from the structure. For growing espalier pear trees along a walkway, construct a strong frame trellis and install it at the same time as the tree. Only trees that are one or two years old can be espaliered. European pear trees typically produce fruit in late summer or early fall. Ensure the tree gets proper sunlight and care for a good harvest.
