PEAR DOUBLE - Taylors Gold & Beurre Bosc

Double grafted pear tree

0 Ratings

Waimea Nurseries grows a range of fruit trees with two or three varieties on the one tree. Some fruit types are grown with both varieties grafted at the bottom of the tree trunk, while others are grown as tiers of branching. The method of propagation is based on the natural habit of the fruit types, to ensure a good shaped tree will result. The tree should be labelled with a small mark of paint to identify which part of the tree each variety is located. This also helps to avoid the potential of accidently pruning off one of the varieties!

Taylors Gold: Russeted Comice pear with sensational flavour. Later ripening.

Beurre Bosc: Superb quality eating brown pear with sweet and juicy large fruit. Taste develops after 3-4 weeks in the refrigerator. Regular and heavy mid season cropper. Tree is vigorous and upright that spreads. Has high chilling requirements to set fruit.
