Pyrus Sensation - Early Season Eating Pears

Description of Sensation Pear Trees & Fruit:
This is a red version of the excellent Williams Bon Chretien but crops a little earlier. Like its parent, it is a sublime eating pear, with almost more juice than flesh and a flavour to match pretty much any other. It also brightens up the garden in spring, when its young leaves have a reddish colour. The tree is naturally quite narrow and upright, so it's a good choice if you're worried about fitting a full sized tree into your garden and it makes a very good cordon if you are training against a wall.

Characteristics of Pyrus Sensation:

  • Eating.
  • Self Sterile.
  • Pollination Group D
  • Spur Bearer: suitable for cordons & training on wires.
  • Harvest: August.

Pollination Partners for Sensation Pears:
Sensation is in pollination group D which means that it will cross-pollinate with trees in groups C & D.
Please see our guide to Pollinating Pear Trees for a full list of partners for Sensation. We especially recommend the eating pears Comice and Conference or the cooking/perry pear Winter Nelis.

Growing Sensation Pear Trees:
Rich soil is important - dig in plenty of good manure and compost before planting so the ground holds moisture but drains as well. Always use Rootgrow. The more sun your trees get the better your crops will be. 

History & Parentage of Sensation:
Sensation is a sport (a natural variation) of the massively popular pear Williams Bon Chretien. It was discovered in Australia in 1940.
