YouGarden Duo Fruit Pear Bare Root Tree – Conference & Concorde
These incredible duo fruit trees have been meticulously grafted by highly skilled nurserymen, to create 2 different trees growing on one rootstock. What’s more, the rootstocks are dwarfing meaning that your trees will always remain compact. You will get 2 different varieties of fruit from 1 tree so are perfect for anyone who loves the idea of picking their own home-grown fresh fruit, but has limited space. Each of the varieties will produce bumper crops of delicious full-sized fruit. Because they are already trained into a V shape, they are perfect for growing up a wall. Varieties Conference Pear: This produces a large crop of fruits with clear white flesh that are ready to pick each September. The long, tapering fruits are packed with an irresistible sweetness and lip-smacking juice that will drip from your chin when you bite into a ripe one. Because of its outstanding flavour, it remains the most popular pear grown in Britain by a long measure both in commercial orchards and home gardens. It is perfect for you to grow because it is very heavy cropping and when picked unripe, is great for keeping for 2 or more months. Crops: September-October Concorde Pear This scrumptious pear variety produces large crops of elegant, tapering fruits with white flesh that are ready to pick from September each year. Each one is packed with an incredibly sweet, irresistible juice you won’t be able to stop yourself eating them straight from the tree. Try to save some for later though as they will make wonderful desserts for your Christmas parties. Concorde is perfect for gardeners to grow because it is very heavy cropping and will keep for over two months when picked unripe.

Care Information Apply a slow-release fertiliser, such as blood, fish and bone, in early spring, and mulch to retain moisture. Water regularly, and don’t let the soil dry out if planted in pots. Established trees don’t require radical pruning; just take off any diseased, dying or damaged branches (the three Ds). Look at the overall shape and aim for an open structure of branches, and remove any that cross over so they don’t damage each other. Hang wasp traps in trees and harvest crops as soon as they ripen. Avoid leaving windfalls or overripe fruit on the ground. Don’t forget the tree guards as rabbits can strip the bark overnight. Shop amazing garden deals right here at Appliance Deals.
