Pyrus Onward - Mid Season Eating Pear

Description of Onward Pear Trees & Fruit:
Onward is very similar to Doyenne du Comice, which in turn is one of the classic dessert pears. The flesh is very smooth, soft and juicy. The flavour has a touch of lip-smacking acidity blended with the sweetness and a truly ripe Onward pear needs to either be eaten with a knife nd fork or you have to be prepared to have juice dribbling down your chin... Fruiting earlier than Comice, it is thinner skinned and so will only store for a few weeks. Usually not a problem in pear loving households where stored fruit never last that long.

Growing Onward Pear Trees:
Rich soil is important - dig in plenty of good manure and compost before planting. Do please use Rootgrow - it makes a real difference. Soil drainage must be good and the sunnier the position the better your crops will be.
