Pear 'Williams' Bon Chretien'

Pyrus communis

Often simply known as 'Williams', the fruits of this superb pear turn yellow as the flesh ripens. Pear 'Williams Bon Chretien' is an early fruiting variety producing large yellow non-gritty fruits with an excellent sweet and juicy flavour. This British bred pear is perfect for poaching and preserving, as well as eating fresh from mid to late September.


Grafted onto 'Quince A' rootstock to produce a tree with moderate vigour and promote fruiting at an early age. These strong growing trees are partially self-fertile but make the ideal planting partner for Conference or Concorde to aid pollination and increase the yield. If you only have room for one tree then make sure that a neighbour has a tree close by that can act as suitable pollinator. Rootstock: Quince A. Height and spread: 4m (13').


Estimated time to cropping once planted: 2 years.
Estimated time to best yields: 6 years.

Apple 'Pixirosso'

Malus domestica

 Customer Rating

A real gem! When fully ripe, the fresh, crisp flesh is a spectacular bright pink-red colour, with dramatic white flashes running through it.
