Cordon Pear trees are a good choice for restricted areas and a fence or wall. They can be grown at a 45degree angle, or upright. The rootstock we use for our cordon Beth is Quince C which is the best stock for cordon trees. Plant 60-80cm’s apart.
Beth is an excellent early variety from East Malling [Kent] This dessert Pear has exceptional eating qualities and is also a heavy cropper. A neat and fairly compact grower.
