    This dessert pear tree is covered with pure white flowers in mid-spring, followed by delicious, long, yellowish green fruits. Broadly columnar in shape it's ideal for an open, sunny site.

  • 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 B, 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 A or C as well.

Grown on Quince A rootstock
