  • Pollination Group: 3 - flowering late season
  • Root Stock: Qunice 'Eline'

    Hailed as 'the star of the pear world', 'Beth' is a reliable cropper, with pure white flowers in spring, followed by delicious, small to medium sized dessert pears. These appear quite early in the season (usually ripening in September), have a smooth, pink-flushed skin, and a sweet and juicy flesh that melts in the mouth!

  • Garden care: Pears naturally shed a small quantity of the developing fruits in mid summer. After this has occurred thin out the remaining pears, leaving one pear per cluster. Add a high-nitrogen feed in spring.

  • Pollination Information: This pear belongs to pollination group 3, so you will need need to plant one other different variety of pear to guarantee cross pollination, and a subsequent bumper crop. Ideally this should come from the same pollination group, however it is possible to use one from group 2 as well.
