Pick of the pear trees

Posted on December 06, 2014 by Potter & Rest

If you’re after the pear tree to go with your partridge, here are a few of our faves:

Pear (Pyrus) ‘Onward’



A bush pear (Quince C rootstock) that produces an excellent quality eating fruit, that’s even reliable even in years of spring frosts. Its sweet and juicy pears can be picked early September and stored until October.

Pear (Pyrus) Doyenné du Comice



A half-standard from ‘Quince A’ rootstock that produces medium/large fruit of a superb quality with a rich flavour for eating. Needs a good pollinator. You can pick the fruit October and store it until November.

This is a Royal Horticultural Society Award of Garden Merit pear.

Pear (Pyrus) Concorde® (Quince A rootstock)



A heavy cropping, compact tree that is self-fertile (so does not need a pollinator) and produces excellent flavoured and juicy fruit for eating.

You can pick the fruit late September and store it until November. This is a Royal Horticultural Society Award of Garden Merit pear.

Pear (Pyrus) Concorde® Patio (Quince C rootstock)



A heavy cropping, compact tree that is self-fertile and produces excellent flavoured and juicy fruit. You can pick the fruit late September and store it until November.

This is a Royal Horticultural Society Award of Garden Merit pear. It performs well in many situations and is a good choice for those who want to produce pears organically.

Pear (Pyrus) Williams’ Bon Chrétien



A half-standard from ‘Quince A’ rootstock that produces medium to large dessert fruit with a juicy and sweet flesh for eating. A regular cropper. You can pick the fruit in late August and store it until September. 

This is a Royal Horticultural Society Award of Garden Merit pear.
