Pear Trees

Pear trees bring Autumn colour, Spring blossom and Summer fruits to your garden, with far better choice and flavour than you’ll find in the shops. They can be trained to suit small or large gardens, or grown in pots on the patio. Read our handy guide for all you need to know about choosing, growing and caring for Pear trees.

Choose your Pear Trees

All of our Pear trees are partially self fertile which means that they’ll crop on their own, but will produce even more fruit with a pollination partner. Conference is the most popular variety and can even be grown in a pot. Concordeand Doyenne du Comice have a superb flavour when eaten raw, while for the sweetest dessert pears, Williams 'Bon Chretien' is our favourite. For something more unusual, grow Kumoi Nashi Pears- these Asian pears are hard to find in the shops and have a delicious sweet white flesh.

Where to grow your Pear Trees

Pear trees are best planted in a warm, sheltered spot in full sun or partial shade - ideally against a south or west facing wall where they’ll be protected against frost. For growing in pots, choose a sunny, sheltered position on a patio and bring the pots indoors during the colder months. Pears prefer a well drained soil with a PH tending towards the acidic.
