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 is Quince C which is the best stock for cordon trees. Plant 60-80cm’s apart.
This variety was named for a pre-eminent Viticulturalist in 1870’s France. It is a good early dessert Pear. The tree is upright and compact in habit.
