‘Conference’ pear tree

£55£125

‘Conference’ is one of the most popular pear varieties. Its fruits are large with firm flesh and a sweet juicy flavour. This variety is self-fertile, which means it doesn’t need another tree nearby for pollination, so will happily produce fruits on its own.

Please note, this tree will lose its leaves over winter, but burst into life again come spring.

About the product

Flowers will appear in March – April, and pears are ready to be harvested in September.

This tree’s rootstock is Quince Eline, meaning the tree will reach a final height of approximately 2m.

If you have no idea what the above sentence means, don’t worry! You don’t need to know anything about this to successfully grow this tree.

But, in case you’re interested, a rootstock is a set of different roots which are grafted onto a plant to control the vigour of the plant. This allows trees and bushes to be grown in a smaller space than if they were grown on their own roots, which is why we’ve chosen them for our fruit trees. The rootstock for this pear tree can also make it more productive and hardy.
