Pyrus Communis Doyenne du Comice
Pyrus Communis Doyenne du Comice is a delicious heritage fruiting pear cultivar which remains very popular with UK gardeners. This deciduous tree was developed in France in 1849, and introduced to the UK in 1858. Doyenne du Comice Pear has been awarded the RHS Award of Garden Merit as well as the Perfect for Pollinators designation.

In May, the clusters of single white flowers attract bees and butterflies as they do the important work of pollination. The glossy green leaves provide a pleasant backdrop for the developing fruits as summer progresses, and then turn yellow in autumn. The golden pears are ready to harvest in October and need to be put in storage to ripen until they are ready in November and December for fresh eating and cooking. The juicy, pale yellow flesh is very fragrant and flavourful, with buttery notes.

Height and Spread of Pyrus Communis Doyenne du Comice
Pyrus Communis Doyenne du Comice will grow to a mature height and spread of 4-8 metres in 5 to 10 years.

How Hardy Is Pyrus Communis Doyenne du Comice?
Pyrus Communis Doyenne du Comice is reliably hardy in all parts of the UK and across northern Europe.

How to Use Pyrus Communis Doyenne du Comice
Doyenne du Comice Pear is a lovely fruiting tree to include in an informal country garden, where its spring blossoms will be a delight, and its autumn fruit harvested and enjoyed. In a large garden, it can be left to grow to full size, while in a smaller space pruning will keep it within bounds.

How to Care for Pyrus Communis Doyenne du Comice
Pyrus Communis Doyenne du Comice is not self-fertile and should be planted with a partner from pollination group 4 such as Concorde or Seckel. Plant the tree in full sun in a sheltered position with a south or west-facing aspect, in well-drained or moist but well-drained clay, sand or loam soil with an acid to neutral pH. Doyenne du Comice Pear is tolerant of aerosol salt, so is suitable for coastal regions, and is also tolerant of air pollution, making it ideal for use in city gardens. Like all fruit trees, it needs to be pruned annually in late winter.

Pyrus Communis Doyenne du Comice will provide you with spring blossoms, summer shade, and a good crop of delicious pears, making it a great choice for including in your garden! We also sell Doyenne du Comice Pear
as a Fan trained Pear Tree.
