Pear 'Red Beurre D'Anjou'

A luscious, creamy pear, which takes its name from the French word for butter (beurre). Bred in the 1950s, this late season pear has excellent storage qualities, keeping for months with no detriment to flavour or texture. In fact, stored fruit of this variety develop a deeper flavour, and can be enjoyed throughout autumn and winter. Purple-red skin gradually matures to a rich glossy red. A compact tree ideal for smaller gardens. Pollinated by `Conference' and `Beurre Bosc'.

How to grow

Pears grow in a wide variety of soils, but do best in a soil enriched with decomposed compost and well-rotted manure prior to planting. Their main requirements are full sun, cool winters (600 chilling hours) and regular irrigation. Flowering a month earlier than apples, protect from frost to improve fruiting. Always plant more than one type for cross-pollination.
