    A dessert pear tree that is covered with pure white flowers in mid-spring followed by blush-coloured pears in autumn. The fruit are deliciously fragrant and there are hints of honey and almond when eaten. A good tree that will succeed in most areas.

    It does need to be planted with another tree from the same flowering group (e.g. 'Williams' Bon Chrétien' and 'Peradel') to ensure good fruit set. 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.
