Pear

Pear trees are known as the queen of fruits to many fruit lovers when eaten at the perfect moment. It is that moment that is often hard to predict. This combines picking not to early and ripening not too fast. When in balance, the experience is sensational. Sweet, juicy and succulent fruits that are easy to grow.

Pears have a rich history but many have their origins in other countries. Those that are derived from the UK are generally the best for our gardens. The secret to eating pears at their best is to pick (unhook the fruit) just before they are ripe to reduce bruising but with enough sugars to develop the flavour during the final ripening process.

We supply a very wide variety of pear trees for both dessert and culinary uses. Cooking pears often ripen very late and if prepared in the autumn will take hours of cooking. Store for as long as possible, even if this is well after Christmas, and they will cook in half the time.

We grow pear trees in a range of rootstocks and forms. They can be grown in a pot, fan trained or in a bush form. Many from our selection have also been awarded the RHS Award of Garden Merit, so keep an eye out for those!
