Pyrus Glou Morceau - Late Season Dessert Pear

Description of Glou Morceau Trees & Fruit:
We recommend this tasty, late cropping eating pear as a pollination partner for most of the other pear trees that we sell. It has masses of flowers that last a little longer than average, which looks good in your garden as well as servicing the other pears in your collection. It is a classic eating pear, with really soft juicy flesh, a strong flavour and a touch of gritty texture in the centre.
This is not a good pear tree for you if you live in the North or Scotland, it needs a Southern summer to ripen properly.

Growing Glou Morceau Pear Trees:

Rich soil is important - dig in plenty of good manure and compost before planting and always use Rootgrow. Drainage must be good. The more sun your trees get the better your crops will be.
