Pyrus Merton Pride - Mid Season Dessert Pears

Description of Merton Pride Pear Trees & Fruit:

A superb English eating pear with melting, smooth, sweet and very fruity flesh. The pears turn from green to yellow when ripe. Some years they will be covered in a fine russet down, other years hardly any.

The tree is not the heaviest cropper but each pear is quite large and utterly delicious

Characteristics of Merton Pride Trees:

  • Self Sterile Triploid (cannot pollinate other trees).
  • Pollination group B.
  • Harvest in September.

Pollination Partners for Merton Pride:
To make fruit, all pear trees need to be pollinated by another variety. Merton Pride is in pollination group B.
This means that it can be pollinated by 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 Merton Pride 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 Merton Pride:
This tree was bred at the John Innes Horticultural Institute in 1941 when it was in Merton, South London.
It was crossed from Glou Morceau and Double Williams - a sport of Williams Bon Chretien.
It was originally called Merton Favourite and was renamed in 1957.

The John Innes Horticultural Institute was founded in 1910 with the fortune left by John Innes after his death in 1904.
The famous John Innes compost formulas, made in the 1930's, are used across the world.
