Product Description

One of the traditional English dessert pears, Williams (or Williams Bon Chretien, after the nurseryman who first propagated it) is a pear tree with a pedigree dating back to the late 18th century.

Also known as the Bartlett Pear, Williams is a good early-season pear variety, producing a regular crop of large, yellow, aromatic fruits with an excellent sweet and juicy flavour. Williams pears have a typical and recognisable 'pear flavour', and this British bred pear is perfect for poaching and preserving, as well as eating fresh from the tree from mid to late September.

Great for wildlife, 'Williams' is on the RHS perfect for pollinators list and is self-fertile, plus when it's in bloom in the middle of the blossom season it can be pollinated by most other pear trees meaning an even bigger crop.

As this tree is on a dwarfing rootstock, it will not get to more than 1.5m in 5 years when in a pot. This will also make picking your fruits so much easier than those of a bigger tree.

Supplied as an established plant in a 5L pot, approx. 90-110cm tall, ready to pot on or plant out.

Plant Information

Top Tips

  • Plant patio fruit trees in containers 45-50cm (18-20in) in diameter, holding at least 30 litres of good quality compost such as John Innes No.3. Alternatively plant them in any well-drained soil in a sheltered sunny position.

Care Guide

  • Plant fruit trees at their original soil level, firm them into the ground and water well.
  • Fruit trees grown in pots will need watering and feeding more regularly than those planted in the ground.
  • To avoid the roots becoming pot bound, re-pot every year or alternate years after leaves have fallen in autumn.
  • Once in its final pot, a plant can be root-pruned every other year with 30 per cent of the compost refreshed. In between, replace the top couple of inches of compost.
  • A good mulch will help to retain water and therefore reduce the need to water as frequently, and will prevent weeds from competing.
  • Your pear tree will not need drastic pruning, just remove any crossing or damaged branches. Any lower branches can be removed if you want to give you a clear trunk. Otherwise in subsequent seasons cut back any strongly growing branches by one third to promote the formation of fruiting spurs.
