Description

Widely regarded as one of the most flavoursome dessert varieties available, Pear 'Doyenne du Comice' has a richness that other cultivars struggle to attain. The large, sweet fruits have a melt-in-the-mouth texture of the highest quality. Harvest them in October and they will store well into November.

  • Pear and Quince rootstocks:
  • Quince C/ Quince Eline/ Quince Adams - Dwarf reaching a mature height of up to 2.5-3m (8-10')
  • Quince A - Semi vigorous reaching a mature height of up to 3m (10') to 4m (13')

This variety is not self-fertile. For the heaviest crops it is best grown with another variety. If you only have room for one tree then make sure that a neighbour has a tree close by that can act as a suitable pollinator. Pollination Group 4 - Cooking Pear

Estimated time to cropping once planted: 2 years.
Estimated time to best yields: 5 years.

How to Grow
Plant pear trees in any well drained soil in a sheltered sunny position. Prior to planting, incorporate plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost into the planting hole and drive the stake into the ground to support the tree. Staking after planting may result in damage to the root ball. Plant fruit trees at their original soil level and firm them into the ground. Fasten the tree to the stake using a tree tie, and water well. Pears will produce the best crops when planted near to another pear tree to increase pollination.
More Info

Fruit trees do not suffer weed competition well. Keep weeds and grass clear from within a 30cm radius of base of the tree. In spring, while the ground is moist, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost around the base of the tree, taking care not to mound it up against the stem. This will help to retain moisture throughout the summer. Feed pear trees regularly and water during particularly dry periods.

Pruning pear trees begins immediately after planting. Remove the central stem to just above the highest side branch. For the following 3 years, prune only the tips of the remaining main branches by one third in winter. Aim for about eight main branches which will form the frame of your tree, with fruiting sub branches growing off of them. From the fourth year, some sub branches can be pruned out at the union where they join the main branch, to allow new sub branches to take their place.

In order to produce the best quality, largest pears, the fruits should be thinned in July leaving one or two pears remaining per cluster.
