    This dessert pear tree is covered with pure white flowers in mid-spring followed by long yellowish green fruits. The flesh is firm and juicy as well as deliciously sweet. An excellent variety that will grow anywhere even performing well in colder areas of the UK.

    Though 'Conference' is partially self-fertile to guarantee a bumper crop of pears plant with another tree from the same flowering group (e.g. 'Concorde' 'Beurre Hardy' and 'Williams Bon Chertein'). It is grown on BA29 rootstock which is semi-vigorous and ideal for dry soils.

    This pear tree has been grown specifically in a double U cordon shape which makes it easier to pick and is great for growing against walls garden dividers or as screening. These trees have been grown for a substantial number of years to form this lovely shape.

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

    The trees are 90cm wide at the widest point (between the top two U's) and are about 1.3m tall.
