Sweet and aromatic with a hint of rosewater. Heavy cropping. Resistant to scab. The blossom is frost resistant but the tree requires a warm location.

Pollination: Group D.


Season: Oct.


Tree Form: Cordon.


Available for delivery: from late November/December 2019.


 

Pear trees, like apple trees, are easy to grow and suffer with very few problems. Cordons should be restricted to 1.8-2.4m (6-8ft) in height and can be spaced 60cm (2ft) apart. Choose a sunny, sheltered site. To ensure rapid establishment, cordon pear trees are supplied bare-rooted and will be 1.2-1.5m (4-5ft) high on despatch. Trees are available from late November to late April.

 

We are now taking orders for Autumn 2019 delivery. Please click here for our range of pot grown cordon pear trees, available for planting now.

 

Don't forget to include tree stakes and ties on your order. All young fruit trees require staking and for better establishment we strongly advise using Rootgrow when planting (as recommended in RHS planting guidelines).
