Pear Dual Doyenne/Winter Nelis

$69.99

Pyrus communis (European Pear)

Double grafted – two varieties on one tree.

Doyenne Du Comice: Large, classic, gourmet dessert pear. Slightly rounded fruit with yellow-green skin blushed red, deepening in colour as it ripens. Very juicy, melting flesh with rich flavour reminiscent of sweetened cinnamon. Fruit ripens mid to late-autumn. High chilling hours needed to set fruit.

Winter Nelis: A very good, late eating pear with excellent storage qualities. Small, green fruit with reddish russet patches and buttery, rich-flavoured flesh. Late season; harvest in May.

Tree will grow approximately 5m high x 4m wide. Requires a full sun position for best fruit development. Pears are deep rooted and will grow in most soil types. Tolerant of wet soils in the summer, though not in winter. Pears grow well in cooler areas with mild summers but ‘Winter Nelis’ is a variety that performs well in warmer areas. Shelter from wind and protect new growth from spring frosts.
