Pollinator Friendly

With small and hard ruddy brown coloured fruits this is hardly an appealing looking variety, nor is it great for eating. But crushed and juiced this makes the most wonderful Perry (pear cider).

  • Season of use October - November.
  • First introduced 1800, Gloucestershire.
  • Self Sterile - requires a pollinator (another pear).
  • 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.

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!
