    Three different types of pears have been grafted onto this 'family' tree, which will bear a sucession of fruit from late summer to mid autumn. The chosen varieties will all cross pollinate freely, so there is no need to plant another tree nearby, making it particularly useful for smaller gardens. This tree has been grafted with the following varieties -

    'Doyenné Du Comicé ' AGM - an outstanding pear, which is renowned for its flavour, texture and taste. Ready to harvest in mid October.

    'Conference' AGM - the pure white flowers of this dessert pear are followed by delicious, long, yellowish green fruits in late September. A popular choice in the UK as it copes well with adverse conditions better than most.

    'Concorde' AGM - a reliable cropping variety producing tasty, juicy, yellow skinned fruits late in the season. The white flowers in spring are also pretty.

  • 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. Apply a high-nitrogen feed in spring.
    In August summer prune. Shorten any side shoots (or laterals) which are longer than 20cm back to three leaves. This will allow the sun to ripen the fruit and encourage more fruit buds. Make sure that the growth you’re cutting away feels firm to the touch.

  • Pollination Information: As these trees are made up of several different varieties that can cross pollinate freely, you will not need another pollinating partner.
