Pear 'Doyenne du Comice' (Late)
Raised in 1849, this late pear has an excellent rich, sweet, aromatic flavour. Creamy white, melting, very juicy flesh. Fruits are large, but cropping can be irregular. Requires a warm, sheltered site. Unsuitable for the north. Will not pollinate Onward or vice versa.
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.
