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.
Invincible is aptly named, for this French raised newcomer produces blossoms usually in two separate flushes, meaning that during frosty seasons it is more likely to yield where other Pears may fail. A very heavy cropper and a good grower suitable for all areas. A highly recommended new Pear variety.
Invincible cordon Pear Tree – season
This variety has a very long season and can be picked from early-mid September to early-mid October, and may then be enjoyed from storage until February or later.
Invincible Pear – appearance
A long deep emerald green pear, yellowing only slightly when fully ripe.
Has a good flavour, crisply juicy and sweet with little or no acidity, but make sure the fruits are properly ripe before eating.
Invincible Pear – Pollination
Invincible is fully self fertile so does well on it’s own with no need for pollinating partners. It is also a great pollinator for other varieties in the A,B or C pollination groups.
