A BARE-ROOT tree for dispatch from the end of November to beginning of March.
Pyrus pyrifolia - Rootstock: Pyrus betulifolia. Japan circa 1898. The name means "20th Century". This variety has a yellow-green skin, and is slightly sweeter and juicer than other varieties. The fruits are not generally baked in pies or made into jams because they have a high water content and a crisp, grainy texture, (very different from the European varieties), so are commonly served peeled and raw. Mid season, Group A. These have proved to be partially self-fertile and will produce a small crop without a pollinator. Ht to 3.5 metres but can be pruned to 2 metres if required. Priced for: Maiden tree, bare-rooted
