'Dwarf Conference Pear Tree'

Pear 'Red William' - 1 root wrap pear tree

Pear 'Red William' - 1 root wrap pear tree

Pear 'Red William' is a wonderful red version of one of the most popular pear varieties in the world. This red 'clone' is just as sweet as the original William's pear but with the added attraction of red skin and being slightly more dwarf than Pear 'Williams Bon Chretien'.


Grafted onto 'Quince A' rootstock to produce a tree with moderate vigour and promote fruiting at an early age. These strong growing trees are partially self-fertile but make the ideal planting partner for Conference or Concorde to aid pollination and increase the yield. If you only have room for one tree then make sure that a neighbour has a tree close by that can act as suitable pollinator. Rootstock: Quince A. Height and spread: 3m (9').


Estimated time to cropping once planted: 2 years.
Estimated time to best yields: 6 years.
