Pears & Perry Pears
We offer a widening selection of Pear trees for sale suited to the British climate and now Perry Pears. All pear trees are grown on our fruit tree nursery. The Pear trees to buy are all dessert varieties apart from two, and most of them have been bred in the UK. Pears trees will grow well in a well drained but moisture retentive soil and will start to fruit early after planting.
The pear trees for sale are available as barerooted one year ‘maiden’ trees and some as little taller two year trees being lifted and dispatched when dormant from November onwards. They vary in size according to the variety. For example Concorde is usually 90 – 120cm / 3-4′ tall whereas Beurre Hardy is often around 1.8m / 6′ tall.
Perry Pears are traditionally grown in the three counties of Worcestershire, Gloucestershire & Herefordshire they make large long lived trees and the fruit is used to make Perry, the pear equivalent of cider. Grown on a vigorous rootstock they can make large trees suitable for grazing beneath.
You can place orders from late July through to early March. We keep our availability up to date during this time. We will then contact you to arrange delivery or collection when the plants have become dormant, between late November and late March.
We do also grow a small quantity of pre-trained apple and pear espaliers in 12 litre containers. They are for collection only because of their size. Contact us for our current availability. These are in containers so can be collected any time of year.
