The Fruitful Potager
Pyrus Communis Pear 'Conference' is a firm fleshed, sweet juicy heirloom pear. It's fruit are large, long necked and have green speckled skin. Mid season. Originated somewhere between 1850 and 1899. Self fertile and a good pollinator for others.
Pears are easy care fruit to grow and espalier very well into many forms, because of this and thanks to dwarf rootstocks they are now great choices for backyard orchards.
