Pyrus Communis Beech Hill is a narrowly conical, deciduous fruiting pear tree that is more commonly known as the Beech Hill Pear or Pyrus Beech Hill. It is a good choice for more compact gardens that want a small, fruiting tree.
In the spring months, beginning around April time, its bare branches suddenly become smothered in white five-petaled flowers which the RHS have awarded the Perfect for Pollinators badge. These sweetly scented white flowers measure 4cms in diameter and grow in clusters making one larger mass of petals which is truly stunning. Small edible pears follow the blossom. Beech Hill Pear is a heavy cropper and although the pears are smaller than supermarket versions, and a shade browner, the sheer amount of fruit often pulls its upright branches toward the ground. Oval to round-shaped foliage appears with the blossom, turning a dark, glossy green towards the summer. As summer progresses into the autumn months its leaves mature into a red- orange shade before falling with the winter weather.
In winter the bare branches reach upwards to cast a narrow outline, and its grey-brown trunk develops an interesting textured peel.
