Our Very First Baby Pears

I’m so excited! Our new William’s Bon Chrétien pear tree has baby pears, aren’t they amazing? You can really see the shape formation already. I adore pears and cannot wait to sample our very own home-grown ones which should be ready to pick by September, ripening a week or so later. It’s self fertile but pollination by another pear will maximise yield, the neighbouring garden to the rear of ours has a mixed orchard on half an acre so hopefully this will help.

  1. We love pears in this house! I would love a pear tree, however we don’t see to have the right climate here in Sydney, so we will have to keep buying them from the fruit and vege shop. Hope you get a bumper crop!
