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 Moonglow is Quince C which is the best stock for cordon trees. Plant 60-80cm’s apart

This variety is really a form of Williams bon Chretien only with a brighter skin. An exceptionally attractive Pear with a lovely flavour.
