‘Conference’ Pear produces a large crop of fruit with clear white flesh that are ready to pick each September. The long, tapering fruits are packed with an irresistible sweetness and lip-smacking juice that will drip from your chin when you bite into one that is perfectly ripe!
Because of its outstanding flavour, it remains the most popular pear grown in Britain by a long measure, both in commercial orchards and home gardens. It is ideal for you to grow because it is very heavy cropping and when picked unripe it’s great for keeping for 2 or more months.
'Conference' is largely self-fertile, so you’ll always get a great crop of the most delicious pears, and it’ll won’t grow too large, as it is supplied grafted onto dwarfing Quince rootstock.
Fully deserving its coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure that this is a proven garden performer, guaranteed to be suitable for UK gardeners at every level of experience. You can therefore plant this in the garden with confidence and enjoy a wonderful crop.
Supplied as a bare root dormant tree 1.2m tall, to plant straight out from November to May, and reaching a height and spread of 2.5m (8ft).
