Concorde Pear

Parentage: Conference x Doyenné du Comice

Description: Concorde is recognised as one of the best varieties for organic growing. Produces medium to large fruits, pale green turning yellow in colour with some patches of gold or brown russet. Pale yellow flesh is sweet and juicy, melting and buttery with a pleasant mild flavour. The tree itself is very compact so makes the perfect tree for small spaces and has beautiful clusters of white blossom in the spring. Grown on a large commercial scale throughout the UK and many other countries too.

History: Raised in Kent at the East Malling Research Station in 1977. Recived an Award of Garden Merit from the Royal Horticultural Society.
