Early season eating pear trees

The season for early eating pears runs from mid August to mid September. In warm summers ripening can occur very rapidly and you need to be vigilant and pick the fruit before they are over-ripe and start to drop. Click here for a guide to choosing pear trees.
We have now stopped taking orders for the winter 2018/19 planting season. Our 2019/20 list is currently being prepared. It will be available from 1st May when we will start taking orders for delivery next autumn/winter.
