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 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.
Tree sizes for Invincible Pear trees:
Quince C rootstock
Is the most compact stock generally used for Pears. It can be maintained at an easily harvested 180-260cm’s and can be planted around 150-180cm’s apart. Quince ‘C’ is easily the most satisfactory rootstock for garden use and can even be incorporated into a large – say 24” – container and kept on the patio. Such trees may be restricted below the 180cm mark.
Quince A rootstock
Is more vigorous than Quince ‘C’ and is ideal for orchard planting, grassy area’s and the larger border. It will grow to 250-350cm’s and should be planted not less than 250cm’s apart. A heavy cropping tree suitable for most good soils and situations.
