Family Pear Tree

An unusual idea. Family pear trees offer the possibility that on each pear tree there will be fruit from three different pears. With this tree you have Conference, Comice and Williams. The different varieties are simply grafted onto the rootstock forming a bit of a Frankenstein tree (in the best possible way of course!). Another benefit is that the three varieties act as pollination partners to one another.

All family pear trees only come in 12L containers as a bush on Quince A rootstock which means they will grow to around 3.6 metres in height.

Take a look at our 
TOP SELLING FRUIT TREES, Wet ground issues then choose a PEAR TREE first, followed by APPLE TREES. For more information on pollination please look at  POLLINATION EXPLAINED or choosing the CORRECT POLLINATION PARTNER

Fruit Tree Life Expectancy
Most fruit trees will give you AT LEAST 40 years of fruit. Pears can go to 70. Records of 200 year old trees exist but this is the exception, not the rule.

Do I Need To Stake My Bare Root Fruit Tree?
9 out of 10 times the answer will be no, especially if under 200cm tall. However our article on Tree Staking should help guide you. 

Choosing the type of Pear tree rootstock:

Those in the horticultural business love their technical lingo, so here is something to help you decipher Gobbeldy Gook from the Green Fingered Brigade. Each rootstock description is made up of several terms from one or more of the following:  

Cordon            :  Columnar shape and short branches. Ideal for space saving and quick fruiting (possibly first year)
Quince C         :  Will reach approx. 2.5 metres. Fruits quicker than Quince A
Quince A         :  Will reach approx. 3.5 metres. Fruits quicker than Kirchensellar
Kirchensaller:  Will reach approx. 6.0+ metres.
Half Standard: Trunk clear of branches for around 1 metre and is traditional tree shaped. Good for gardens e.g. easy mowing and companion planting underneath.
Straight Lead: Much more of a clear trunk than a Half Standard, usually around 2.0 + metres.
Bush            : Pruned so that branches start around 45cm from the ground.
Maiden            : 1-2 years old and unpruned, ideal for shaping into Fan, Espalier etc
