This delightful dessert pear tree is covered with pure white flowers in mid spring, followed by large fruits, renowned for their excellent flavour. Vigorous and upright in habit it's an ideal specimen tree for a small, sunny, well-drained site. Garden care: Pears naturally shed a small quantity of the developing fruits in mid summer. After this has occurred thin out the remaining pears, leaving one pear per cluster. Add a high-nitrogen feed in spring.Pollination Information: This pear belongs to pollination group C, so you will need need to plant one other different variety of pear to guarantee cross pollination, and a subsequent bumper crop. Ideally this should come from the same pollination group, however it is possible to use one from group B as well.
