Our Feedback
Placed my first order with you last week and must say I could not be more pleased with your service. I received an e-mail confirming my order and a further e-mail to let me know when my order had been dispatched, I was amazed when my order arrived the day after when I was expecting 3 to 5 days. The plants arrived very well packed and protected and were in excellent condition and a good size that did not need growing on. The plants have been in the ground for nearly a week and are looking strong and healthy. I will certainly be using you again. Well done on an excellent service. Best Wishes

  • Despite being recognised as Self Sterile these actually prove to be partially self fertile and can produce small crops without a pollinator.
  • Pyrus betulifolia rootstock.

Supplied as a containerised tree pruned to approximately 3 - 4 feet (90 - 120 cm) tall including pot.

Available from APPROXIMATELY late November / early December 2019

Qty:
Pollinator Friendly

Medium to large sized bronze-russeted fruits have yellow-white flesh. Firm and crisp, the fruit has a rich and sweet flavour.

Heavy cropping, vigorous in habit and recognised to be the most fire blight resistant variety of all.

Sometimes known as Nashi, Sand, Oriental, Chinese or Sahli Pears.

  • Despite being recognised as Self Sterile these actually prove to be partially self fertile and can produce small crops without a pollinator - though pollination by another Pear (Asian or a conventional European variety) will maximise yield.
  • Grown on Pyrus betulifolia 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).
  • Harvest late August - mid September. The fruit is ripe when it pulls easily from the tree.

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

Recommended by the RHS to assist in encouraging bats into the garden as the flowers are likely to attract moths and other night-flying insects which bats love to eat!
