Description

A pair of delicious pear varieties grafted onto one pear tree!

Pear Duo Family Tree is the perfect option for maximising space. It has been carefully grafted with two popular, reliable varieties selected for their suitability for the UK climate and their excellent flavour. Both varieties have been distinguished with an RHS Award of Garden Merit. Additional interest is provided by white blossom in spring, making Pear Duo Family Tree a stunning ornamental feature as well.

Pear 'Conference': Pollination group 3, self-fertile

The best known of all pears, ‘Conference’ is a mid-season variety bearing long, bell-shaped fruits with firm flesh and a smooth juicy flavour that can be eaten hard or fully ripe.

Pear ‘Beurre Hardy’: Pollination group 4, not self-fertile

Pear 'Beurré Hardy' is a vigorous, late variety that copes well in poorer soils. The pale green fruits have russet skins and an exceptional flavour and melting texture.

Maximum height: 2.5-3.5m (8.2-11.5ft). Spread: 1.2-1.8m (4-6ft).

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.
