Pear Doyenne du Comice is the perfect fruit tree for a small garden. It flourishes planted in the ground but also grows well in patio pots. These pear trees have a compact growing habit, but they make a big impact.
In spring, the branches are covered in an abundance of pure white flowers through April and May. These give way to developing fruits that are ready to harvest from September. The pears themselves are golden-green in colour and become tinged with pink as they ripen.
Doyenne du Comice pears are well-known for their full, sweet flavour. They can feel quite heavy due to their high water content, which contributes to the melt-in-the-mouth texture of the juicy flesh. This pear cultivar is suitable for cooking in desserts but can also be enjoyed fresh from the tree.
Pear Doyenne du Comice trees are easy to grow and don’t demand much attention to thrive. They are hardy against cold winter temperatures and only need watered during particularly dry spells. Prune in winter to remove any dead or damaged branches before the tree bursts back into life in spring.
