'Conference' pears are probably the easiest pears to grow in Ireland, giving regular, heavy crops of russet/green medium sized fruit. They can be used as either sweet and juicy "eaters" or as cooking pears. They will set a good crop of fruit without another variety being present. However, the best fruit set is achieved by growing at least two varieties to help with pollination. If you live in a densely poulated area, chances are there will be other pears nearby and therefore you can get away with one pear on its own. They prefer a sunny location with moist well-drained soil, but will also tolerate a shady location such as a north facing wall. 5ft tall plants in a 10L container. Please note: items displayed on this website may not be in stock in each of our shops.
