An old English pear variety, first introduced in the 18th Century, Williams' Bon Chretien (Pyrus 'Williams' Bon Chretien') is an extremely good pear.  The pears are medium to large in size and an appealing pale green colour turning later to an attractive golden yellow colour.  Very juicy and sweet and with regular, good crops, Williams' Bon Cretien is a good choice of pear.

Month of Picking: October

Type of Pear: Eating

Self-fertile/Not self-fertile: This pear is not self-fertile so it is necessary to have another pear for pollination

This pear is in flowering period is C3. 

How to chose a suitable pollination partner:

To make it easy to match this pear with a suitable pollination partner we have used a series of codes, which are C1, C2, C3, C4 and C5 and relate to flowering periods.  Every pear variety we sell will have one of these codes. 

The code we have given this pear tree means that you need to find another pear with the same code or one less or one more, so for example, if the pear is code C4, then another pear variety with code C3 or C5 would be suitable to act as a reliable pollination partner.

This variety of pear tree is supplied in a 12 litre container, which means that the tree can be planted any time of the year and with better results than either bare-root or rootballed trees.

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.

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
