BARE ROOT Williams Bon Chretien Pear Tree. Click The Link For Containerised Williams Bon Chretien.

A pear that has been enjoyed since the seventeen hundreds, not that we know anyone to ask them directly about that but those history people seem convinced it was so. In fact it is so good, the RHS have given it an award. This will be because it is juicy, sweet, an early and good cropper with medium to large size pears. 

Williams Bon Chretien pears are a pale green colour turning an attractive golden yellow.

Month of Picking: Late August and will keep to September

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 to provide pears.

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 ensures the pear flowers of both trees are open at the same time. Maximum pollination will occur when buying two pears of the same number.

Which Type Of Pear Tree Rootstock To Choose:

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 and Kirchensellar 
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, step over etc 
Bare Root       :
There is no soil or pot around the roots which are wrapped in a bag and are cheaper than containerised.
1 Year             : Pear Tree will be between 1 and 2 years old
2 Year             : Pear Tree will be between 2 and 3 years old 
Family Pear Tree. Three different varieties of pear on one tree that pollinate each other. Click the link to see current Family Pear Trees in stock.

Fruiting Times For Bare Root Pear Trees
The general rule of thumb with most fruit trees is that the smaller the ultimate height of the tree, the sooner it will bear fruit. Pear trees around 2.5 metres could fruit in 1-2 years whereas those at 6+ metres could be as much as 5 years. Weather can increase or decrease these times.

Do I Need To Stake My Bare Root 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.
