Invincible Delwinor Pear Tree
Invincible Delwinor (Pyrus 'Invincible Delwinor') is well named because it is tough and hardy pear, producing heavy crops each year and will often produce a second flowering after a heavy frost. The fruit quality is fair with a host of desert and cooking options. The strength is in its yield and precocity. Would make an ideal pollinator for other varieties in a similar flowering period. Ideal for exposed areas where a pear tree is a must e.g. North UK
The Quince A is usually grown as a bush shape, if this is important to you, please check with us before purchase. A Bush means the branches start lower to the ground whereas a Standard or Half Standard means it has more of a clear stem.
Month of Picking: September
Type of Pear: Eating/Cooking
Self-fertile/Not self-fertile: This pear is is self-fertile so it is not necessary to have another pear for pollination for it to provide pears.
This pear is in flowering period is C2
This pear could act as a suitable pollination partner for pears in the flowering categories C1, C2 and C3.
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.

Growing Our Trees In The UK
To date, we have checked the passports of our trees and none seem to have sneaked off for non UK holidays so all are UK grown.
Warm and wet conditions from Climate Change have increased aesthetic foliage issues such as Powdery Mildew, Shothole, Rust etc These are not terminal issues and will usually last a season. All trees are inspected before being sent out to ensure they are fundamentally healthy.
Planting In The Corner Of A Garden
Air and light is reduced in this location which could promote fungus and bacterial issues. If the corner is of the house and a fence then you also have leeching issues to contend with from cement and wood preservatives. Also when it rains, that area would experience higher water levels so we advise against it.
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 Eline : Almost identical to Quince C but but has superior cold hardiness.
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
