Pyrus Comice: Late Season Pear Tree

Doyenne du Comice is an all-time classic dessert pear, one of the most popular on European farms. Very sweet, with perfectly juicy, melting flesh. Pale yellow when ripe, sometimes they develop a bit of russeting or a bit of a rosy flush.

They are vigorous, upright and heavy cropping. They flower late, so they are suitable for frosty places.

Please note: The normal versions of this tree are only sold bareroot and delivered in winter (Nov-March). The mini patio version is pot grown and delivered year round.

Ripening Comice Pears:
They are best picked when still green and then stored in a cold place, where they will slowly ripen.
To ripen them quickly, bring some into a warm room & they will be ready in about 2 days.
With some planning, you can have fresh, ripe pears on Christmas Day.

Features:

  • Self Sterile.
  • Susceptible to scab, resistant to mildew - best grown in the East of Britain.
  • Pollination Group C.
  • Harvest when green in November.
  • Store in a cold place to ripen slowly.
  • Bring into a warm room to ripen in about 2 days.
  • Pot grown delivery (Mini patio form only): Year round
  • Bareroot Delivery: Nov-March.

Pollination Partners for Comice:
To make fruit, all pear trees need to be pollinated by another variety.
Doyenne du Comice is in pollination group C.
This means that it will pollinate with trees in groups B & C (except Onward trees).
Please see our guide to Pollinating Pear Trees for a full list of partners for Doyenne du Comice.

Growing Comice:
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.

Diseases: Comice is susceptible to scab but resistant to mildew: this makes them a better choice for the East of England & Scotland, not so good for Wales or the West of England where scab is more common.

Details about delivery sizes: Guide to Fruit Tree Sizing.

History & Parentage of Doyenne du Comice:
A French variety from the mid 1800s, brought to Britain in 1858 by Sir Francis Dyke Acland. 

Onward and Concorde were bred from Comice.
