Growing Calendar for Pear Beurre Hardy - Tree
Delivery: Early November to Late May
Pear Beurre Hardy is one of the most outstanding dessert pears, it has a very distinctive flavour. The variety is designed to be much harder than the standard Beurre Hardy which needs sheltering. Like all pears it is definitely worth growing even if you don’t have a taste for pears.
This pear is very ornamental when in flower and all the branches are covered with white blossom. The leaves turn to a bright red colour in the autumn. The variety is compact but may require pruning depending on the space that you have where you have planted it.
The delicious melting flesh has a fragrant, aromatic, almost rosy scent and is just full of juice. The fruit should be picked whilst still hard in the middle of September and then left to ripen in storage.
