Duo pear tree: ‘Conference‘ + ‘Bonne Louise‘ - TreePyrus communis ‘Conference’ + ‘Bonne Louise’
Two types of pear on one tree
Two types of pear on one tree? That's something we'll never tire of. The duo pear tree in a nursery pot consists of the ‘Conference‘ and ‘Bonne Louise‘. The ‘Conference‘ is a tasty, sweet pear while the ‘Bonne Louise‘ has a gently tart flavour and soft flesh, making it a unique duo. We plant the self-pollinating pear tree out in the garden. Alternatively, it can be planted in a large pot on a patio, roof terrace or balcony. The fruit tree blossoms in spring. That's when it reveals its lovely white flowers. A crop will be ready to harvest from autumn onwards in the second year after planting. We prune the pear tree between November and March. The pear tree grows in loose, fertile soil that we keep nice and moist. It's best to give the tree extra water during dry spells. Sufficient light is needed to ensure good growth, which is why we plant the fruit tree in full or half sun.Show more
