Pyrus Hellens Early Pears

Description of Hellens Early Pear Trees & Fruit:

This reliable, heavy cropping tree is a good choice if you are making pear cider (perry) and want to grow some other perry pear trees as well. By itself, the fruit will make a perfectly drinkable, tangy perry, but it is best combined with other varieties. If you blend it with Brandy or Cannock pears, you will get a really full bodied drink. Hellens Early is a vigorous, heavy cropping tree.
