GROWERS GUIDE

Pear

Not too difficult to grow

Plant single-stem or part-trained trees (on suitable rootstock). Choose well drained fertile soil on warm sunny sheltered site.

Stake and train in pyramid shape or use wire framework.

Pick when firm. Grow varieties that flower together for fruit set, i.e. ‘pollination groups’. Protect early flowers from frost with fleece.
