Pear 'Humbug' (Late season)
This unusual green, yellow and pink striped pear has a sweet juicy texture and thick skin. Will store until February. The variety was bred in the Ukraine where it is traditionally stored over winter and eaten to celebrate the onset of spring. They also use the fruits in table decorations.
Pear trees are grafted on a Quince 'A' rootstock and will reach an eventual height of 2.5-3.5m (8-12ft). Trees should be planted 3-4.5m (10-15ft) apart.
Pear trees are available for delivery from late November until late March.
Please remember that fruit trees do require staking for the first few years of their life, we also strongly recommend the use of rootgrow™ when planting to encourage strong root growth and aid establishment.
