I apologize for the delay in answer to your question. Pear trees can be planted throughout the growing season beginning in the spring. Now would be too late. To have pears on your tree you typically need two varieties of pear trees. This allows for cross pollination . I have attached a link below for an article on choosing, planting and caring for pear trees. It includes varieties that are Minnesota hardy. http://www.extension.umn.edu/garden/yard-garden/fruit/pears-in-home-garden/index.html
