Pear 'Williams' Bon Chretien' (Early)
Raised about 1770, this early pear is of excellent sweet flavour. Flesh is white, soft and very juicy. Crops regularly but not particularly heavily. Will not pollinate 'Red Williams' 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.
