Broadly columnar in shape it’s ideal for an open, sunny site. Garden care: Pears naturally shed a small quantity of the developing fruits in mid summer. After this has occurred thin out the remaining pears, leaving one pear per cluster. Add a high-nitrogen feed in spring.

Ideally this should come from the same pollination group, however it is possible to use one from group A or C as well.
