Organic Beurre Hardy Dessert Pear Trees originate from France and carry the Beurre prefix (meaning butter) and although not all continental pear varieties grow well in the UK, you can expect plenty of medium to large fruits from this popular pear variety.
Supplied in a bare rooted maiden form, our Organic Beurre Hardy Dessert Pear Trees are ideal for training as espaliers or cordons and you can choose from Quince A rootstock trees (moderately vigorous growth) or the slightly smaller Quince C rootstock grown trees to suit your garden and the space you have available. The pears from Organic Beurre Hardy Dessert Pear Trees are usually harvested from mid September and will store until October; but these very juicy, well flavoured and russet brown/faint red fruits might not make it that long before you tuck in!
Organic Beurre Hardy Dessert Pear Trees are despatched in bare-root form between November and March.

Planting and Delivery Information
See our Guide to Successful Fruit Trees for more growing advice.
Planting - do not attempt to plant your fruit trees when the ground is frozen or waterlogged. The trees can be stored in their packaging in an outbuilding or garage for 2-3 days, or can be heeled into the soil where the ground is not as frozen. Alternatively, plant up in large pots or containers and ensure the roots have good contact with the soil.
