Pyrus Beth - Early Season Pears

Description of Beth Trees & Fruit:

Beth pears are quite small but very abundant and they are some of the earliest to ripen each season. The young skin is dappled green and brown, yellowing as it ripens fully in August.
The succulent, pale flesh almost melts in the mouth and the flavour is the equal of any other sweet dessert pear.

Beth pear trees grow vigorously, reaching maturity before most of their cousins. They have a tight growth habit which suits smaller gardens.

Browse our full range of pear trees or see the full variety of fruit trees for sale.

Characteristics of Beth Trees:

  • Self Sterile.
  • Smallish fruit in big crops.
  • Vigorous, upright tree.
  • Harvest in August & store for 4-8 weeks.

Pollination Partners for Beth:
To make fruit, all pear trees need to be pollinated by another variety.
Beth is in pollination group B.
This means that it will cross-pollinate any other pear tree that you can buy from us - take your pick!
Please see our guide to Pollinating Pear Trees for more details.

Growing Beth Pear Trees:
Rich soil is important - dig in plenty of good manure and compost before planting.
Soil drainage must be good.
The more sun your trees get the better your crops will be.

History & Parentage of Beth:
Mr Tydeman of the East Malling Research Station, the home of so many of our great fruit trees, crossed Beurre Superfin with Williams bon Chretien.

The Superfin fruit is delicious but English weather is not reliable enough to ensure good crops, while Williams is an all-weather favourite of farmers and home-growers alike.

Mr Tydeman worked on this tree in the 1930's. The Second World War interrupted and it was not until 1978 that it was named Beth and sold commercially.

Bareroot planting is best done between October and April
