Pear Varieties

Introduction

Having homegrown pears is an autumnal treat, something to look forward to all year round. They are deliciously sweet, and there are many cultivars that cope well with the UK climate.

Similar to apples, there are cooking varieties (that are not commonly grown) and dessert varieties. Depending on the variety chosen, pears will be ripe for picking from August until late October.
