‘Doyenne Du Comice’ Pear Tree is one of the most popular pears currently grown.
A queen of pears according to some, it’s succulent texture and wonderfully sweet taste are superb. This pear is known for withstanding tough conditions if you have a troublesome area in your garden too. Large, golden-yellow fruits may have an irregular yield at times but it’s good storage and lovely ripe fragrance make up for it.
Doyenne Du Comice is available on a rootstock to make it suitable for growing in your garden. The rootstock controls the rate of growth and ensures the tree fruits earlier than when grown on its own roots. Most modern cultivated pears are grown on Quince A rootstock.
Quince A, a Semi-Vigorous variety, is suitable for most soils and sites. This rootstock allows the tree to grow to a mature height of up to 3.5m (11ft) of 10 years.
