Perry pear trees

Perry is made by fermenting pear juice. It is the pear equivalent of cider. Perry pears are usually quite small. The high levels of acids and tannins that they contain help make good perry but also makes them unpalateable fresh. 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.
