This unique variety produces plentiful crops of tiny, bite-sized pears from September onwards. The attractive, small, yellow fruits are sweet and juicy with virtually no core. Delicious eaten fresh or poached, this appealing variety is perfectly proportioned for kids lunch boxes - and equally appealing to grownups too! A superb pear tree for growing in large containers in a prominent spot on the patio.
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 other varieties such as 'Williams Bon Chretien' 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: 3m (9').

Feed and water containerised plants regularly. Prune only the tips of the main branches by one third in winter. Some sub branches can be pruned out when necessary 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 fruits, pears should be thinned in July leaving one or two fruits remaining per cluster.
