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

Winter Nellis is a Belgian variety first known in the UK in 1818. It is only a small fruit but has a lovely flavour and stores very late. A small growing tree but frost hardy and reliable.
