Pyrus Conference: Mid-Late Season Pear Tree

A delicious pear and one of the best choices for shadier and colder spots, Conference is the UK's most widely grown garden variety.

It is ideal for training on wires as a cordon or espalier and is the only variety we recommend for North facing walls.

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.
Browse our range of pear trees, other mini patio trees, or the full variety of fruit trees.

Features:

  • Sold as a bareroot normal tree, or a potted Mini Patio tree.
  • Partially Self Fertile.
  • Pollination Group A.
  • Excellent pollinator.
  • Not recommended for Organic growing.
  • Recommended for Scotland & the North or partially shady sites in the South.
  • Harvest in September, ripen until November.
  • Bareroot delivery: Nov-March
  • Pot grown delivery (Mini patio form only): Year round

Pollination Partners for Conference:
Conference will fruit quite well by itself, but the crop size and fruit quality is much better when your trees are pollinated.
Conference is in pollination group A.
This means that it can cross-pollinate with any tree in Groups A or B.
Please see our guide to Pollinating Pear Trees for a full list of partners for Conference.

Growing Conference 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.

Diseases: Conference has some susceptibility to Canker, Mildew and Scab.
If you spray your trees when necessary, there should be no problem, but this is not a good tree for organic growing.

Details about delivery sizes: Guide to Fruit Tree Sizing.

History & Parentage:
Bred by Mr Thomas Rivers from Leon Leclerc de Laval and an unknown variety. It is named after the National British Pear Conference of 1885 where it was first displayed.

It is one of the parents of Concorde.
