Pyrus communis Conference, also known as the Conference Pear, is a popular edible fruiting pear that was first introduced in 1885 and won the RHS Award of Garden Merit in 2002.
The Conference Pear is quite early to flower, producing a display of single white flowers just before the glossy, green foliage emerges.
The fruit begins to develop over the summer period, ripening to a sweet and juicy green and golden colour by the time they are ready to pick in from October onwards.
At maturity this tree forms a small, oval shaped tree.
It is a fairly tough performer, coping with a variety of soil conditions including clay.
Pyrus communis Conference is self-fertile; meaning that a fertilisation partner is not essential, however fruiting will be improved if a compatible partner is nearby.
Pyrus Doyenne du Comice is a pollination partner of this pear which is stocked by Barcham Trees.
If you live in an area prone to rabbits or deer then we recommend rabbit guards for these trees.
Mature Height: 3-7m
