Pear Conference in the GardenTags plant encyclopedia

Pyrus communis 'Conference'

 

Pear 'Conference'

Most pear trees are deciduous, and naturally can grow up to 17 m. For garden cultivars the size of the fully grown tree is decided by the rootstock (usually quince). They can be grown as fan-trained, or espaliers, and can also be grown in pots. Most pear varieties require a second compatible variety as a pollinator. 'Conference' is a dessert pear with a brownish green skin. It is a "spur-bearer"

Flowering

From Early Spring TO Mid Spring

Pear trees flower in Spring. If frost is likely to occur, while the tree is in blossom, protect it with horticultural fleece, otherwise the fruit may not set.

 

Planting

From Late Winter TO Early Spring

When preparing the plant a pear tree, choose a sunny, sheltered, free-draining site, and dig a hole the depth of the roots and 3 times bigger in circumference than the root system. When planting the tree, tease out the roots and spread them across the dug hole, before back-filling, and then watering thoroughly..
