Duo tree has been grafted with two delicious pear varieties:
Beurre Hardy - A classic French dessert pear from the early 1800s, whose medium-to-large fruits boast soft, buttery flesh with an excellent flavour. Pick when still firm and ripen indoors for best quality fruit. Ready to harvest from early autumn. Maximum height 2.5-3m (8'-10').
Williams Bon Chretien - Usually just called Williams pear. Large, sweet smooth and very juicy! It turns yellow when ripe, and while a superb eating pear, it's also great for stewing. Reliably heavy-cropping.
One of the easiest of trees to grow. Our delicious varieties are grown on ‘Quince A’ rootstock giving a tree with moderate vigour and promoting pears to fruit at an early age.
