This is probably the most well known and widely grown pear in the world. It is grown for very sweet fruit and is used in the famous liqueur 'Pear Williams'. This is an "early" pear, therefore the fruit is ready for picking in September. Crops will be better if grown with another pear to aid polination. We recommend growing it with the variety 'Beurre Hardy'. Plant in full sun in well-drained soil. Pears benefit from a top-dressing of well-rotted manure in spring. 5-6ft tall trees in a 10L container. Plants displayed on this website are not necessarily in stock in each of our shops.
