How does a pear tree grow?

How do you plant a pear seed to start a tree?
You might not have good results if you grow a pear tree from a seed. Many pears are grafted. They will take hardy, wild rootstock and graft a fairly weak branch to it. The pear will, then be fertilized by who-knows-what other pear and the seeds may produce a tree that bears poor quality fruit or the tree may be weak. If you want a good, strong, fruit bearing tree you get the best results by getting a young tree from a nursery. If all you want to do is get the seeds to grow, you can plant them in a well-drained pot with potting soil. You should have sprouts in a couple weeks.
