Pear 'Conference' (Late Season)
Raised in 1894, this remains the most widely grown late pear. Produces long, narrow fruits. Firm flesh, pleasant flavour. Very reliable and suitable for the north.
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.
