Never has there been a better time to Grow Your Own and reap the benefits of producing your own fresh, healthy food. Making use of home gardens has always been a sensible thing to do, but now more than ever with genetic modification, predicted supermarket shortages and environmental damage, produce picked and eaten from your own plot has never been a better idea!
Identified in a Belgian fruit farm as being a dwarfing sport, 'Little Conference' was discarded by the commercial growers because it was too dwarfing for their use. However, it throws normal size fruits and by grafting onto medium vigour stock we have ensured that it stays robust.
'Conference' Pear 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 in to a ripe one!
Because of its outstanding flavour, it remains the most popular pear grown in Britain by a long measure and this patio pear is a really good variety and dead easy for any gardener who is staring out in growing Patio Fruit. 'Conference' is largely 'self-fertile' and will be supplied on a dwarfing rootstock. Expected height at 5 years 1.5m.
