Doyenne du Comice
Arguably the best flavoured pear. Self sterile.
Introduced from France 1849.
Self sterile. Early. First recorded 1629.
A red version of Williams Bon Chretien that crops a little earlier. Like its parent, it is a sublime eating pear, with almost more juice in it than flesh and a flavour to match any other pear. It also brightens up the garden in spring, when its young leaves have a reddish colour.
The tree is naturally quite narrow and upright, so it’s a good choice if you’re worried about fitting a full sized tree into your garden.
QA – Will grow to around 13-16ft depending on the strength of the variety.
