Pear trees

 

Devotees of pears place this fruit above all others for its sweet, aromatic succulence when perfectly ripe. Home grown pears enable gardeners to enjoy them at their very best.

 

Dessert pears prefer rich, well-drained soil and plenty of warmth and are therefore suited to growing in prime spots. Dual purpose pear types will tolerate open sites or more exposed conditions. Pears are adapted to growing as bushes, pyramids or trained forms and will withstand harder pruning to form fruiting spurs.
