Fan Trained Conference Pear Tree
Pyrus Communis Conference, also known as the Conference Pear Tree, is a popular edible pear variety, prized for its sweet, juicy fruit. One of the most widely grown varieties, this cultivar is fan-trained and ideal for urban gardens with limited space.
In mid-spring, clusters of pure white flowers grace this deciduous fruit tree. Long and thin, the fruits ripen in the fall, their skin bright green and covered with russet. The savory, smooth flesh of Conference pears is sometimes tinged with pink and has outstanding flavour characteristics. However, it’s not only the exquisite taste of the fruit that makes this variety popular, but its excellent keeping abilities as well. Conference pears can be stored in a refrigerator for up to two months. Delicious when eaten fresh, this dessert pear is equally enjoyable in baked or cooked dishes.
Tolerant of most type of soils, Conference Pear Tree will thrive in fertile, well-drained soil and full sun. Since this cultivar is fan-trained, it’s best suited for growing against a sunny wall, or a south-facing fence, where it can get the light it needs to flourish. When fully mature, fan-trained Conference Pear Tree can grow to be approximately 4 metres high and across. 
Bred in Britain, this fan-trained pear tree is fully hardy in all of UK. Although able to survive temperatures as low as -20 degrees, this cultivar blossoms relatively early, so it might suffer frost damage in areas with unusually cold winters. Nonetheless, when compared with other pear varieties, Conference Pear Tree has a better track record when grown in wet, cold conditions. Considered healthy and robust, this dessert pear variety is relatively resistant to pests and diseases. The noteworthy characteristics of the fruit and an overall good performance earned this cultivar the prestigious Award of Garden of Merit by Royal Horticultural Society. 
Easy to grow and care for, fan-trained Conference Pear is an ideal choice for smaller gardens. Compact and unobtrusive, it takes up little lateral space but crops profusely. Even though Conference Pear Tree is largely self-fertile and can produce seedless fruits without cross-pollination, it benefits enormously from pollinating neighbours and crops more heavily when planted alongside a pear variety from a different pollinating group.
