Our Feedback

To all the team I have just had a call from my Aunt who received your Golden Wedding rose yesterday. She was thrilled with it, and said it arrived beautifully wrapped and in perfect condition. Thank you so much for taking such care with this gift, and I look forward to dealing with you again in the future.

This is probably the best known and best all round pear for growing in the UK.

Reliable and heavy cropping (even in poorer years) it produces long, narrow, yellow-green fruits which are very juicy and sweet.

  • Season of use October - November.
  • First introduced 1885, Hertfordshire, UK. (at the National British Pear Conference - hence its name).
  • Self Fertile - but pollination by another pear will maximise yield.
  • Grown on Quince A rootstock for an ultimate (un-pruned) height of 8 - 12 feet (2.4 - 3.65 metres) but can easily be kept at a height of 6 - 8 feet (1.8 - 2.4 metres).

Recommended by the RHS to be an excellent attractant and nectar source for bees and other beneficial insects.

Available from approximately mid November 2014
