The finest all round British pears, you'll often find these in supermarkets. Bon Chretien is a versatile pear, great for eating fresh or cooking with a good flavour and aroma. They have a fascinating and slightly scandalous history. They were first discovered in England and later taken to America where an American nurseryman renamed them after himself as Bartlett. Although these were proven to be the same variety a few years later they are still known as Bartlett's in America to this day. The pretty white blossoms and dark glossy green foliage make this a beautiful addition to the garden in spring, the fruit appears in September and as with all pears should be harvested slightly under-ripe. Has the RHS Award of Garden Merit. Supplied as two year old trees grafted onto semi dwarf root stock, Quince A. All the varieties we offer will pollinate with each other and are the most manageable but will need to be kept pruned for the average garden.

Order any two or more large fruit trees for only £12.99 each saving £2 per tree.

Pruning

Late Winter/Early Spring

Fruit trees are suitable for planting in most types of moderately fertile, well drained soil, although they do not like acid soil. If possible prepare the ground some time in advance of planting. Open out holes and plant with enough space to accommodate the roots without cramping them. Plant in a sunny location as they do not prosper too well in the shade. Make sure that you plant with a stake, as this will be needed for at least five years to help support the tree. Two year old fruit trees grafted onto the most dwarf root stock, Quince A.
Young trees must be watered thoroughly and sprinkle with fertilizer each spring. You can also mulch in April with rotted manure or compost around the base of the trunk. They should be planted in well sheltered locations. They will blossom and flower in Spring and fruit is normally ready to be picked throughout Autumn. All are self fertile.
