Varieties 

Clapp’s Favourite is an early season pear with attractive flushed skin. Best eaten straight from the tree,

 

Concorde is a fairly new variety ideal for the UK as it grows well in an English summer. Fruit is large and creamy yellow, with extensive russet and a lovely flavour.

 

Conference is the most widely grown pear in the UK. It crops heavily and reliably and will grow in most situations. Best eaten fresh, Conference is also a good pollinator for many other pears.

 

Doyenne du Comice is widely considered to have the best flavour of any pear. It has both “melting” flesh and a sweet rich delicate flavour.

 

Williams is one of the oldest English dessert pears. A good early season variety with a nice flavour and fairly easy to grow.
