Pear Concorde

A new compact variety perfect for small gardens

Yellow fleshed fruit with a buttery flavour make this a treat picked and eaten fresh in late autumn. A newer variety which is compact so ideal for smaller spaces, it will reliably produce good crops.

Where?

Happy in sun or part shade and moist, fertile soil.

How?

Enrich the soil before planting by digging in organic matter - homemade garden compost or well rotted manure is fine. Water your tree occasionally until it has established. This variety is self-pollinating which means it will produce a crop of pears without the help of a neighbouring pear tree acting as a pollinator. It will pollinate other pear trees though, and is in flowering group 4.

Planting instructions

Water the plant in its pot thoroughly before planting – give it a good soaking. Prepare the area by digging a hole twice the size of the pot. Dig compost into the base of the hole. Position the stake in the hole, on the side of the prevailing wind and drive it into the soil, to a depth of 60cm. The stake should be a third of the height of the tree, when planted. Remove the pot and position the plant in the hole close to the stake, with the rootball about level with the surrounding soil. Refill the planting hole with a mixture of garden soil and compost, firming as you go. Use two tree ties to secure the stem to the stake. Water in well and keep well watered during the plant's first year. Check ties regularly and adjust them as the tree grows.
