    A dessert pear tree that is covered with pure white flowers in mid-spring followed by green fruits. The flesh of the fruit is white soft and very juicy and deliciously sweet. It crops regularly but not particularly heavily and is an excellent variety to grow.

    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.

  • 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.
