This tree is grown on dwarf Quince C stock which is compact and makes the smallest Pear tree of all. Trees can be maintained at around 180cm’s in height with a similar spread, perhaps a little less if contained in a 20” pot. The trees are easy to manage and easy to harvest!
Improved Fertility was raised by the famous Seabrooks Nursery in Essex, a popular garden Pear tree because it is self fertile so will produce good fruits on it’s own. Has good disease resistance and is capable of heavy crops, grows well everywhere. Although ideally suited to dessert, it can also be cooked and bottled.
