Pear Doyenne du Comice is a brilliant old variety which was first introduced into Britain in 1858 and it is one of the largest, juiciest and sweetest of pears.
The smooth luscious flesh of the pear melts in your mouth and the delicious juice will dribble out. The fruit are a lovely golden yellow with a slight red blush, they are very fragrant and also aromatic. The variety is a true dessert pear, it was re-introduced into our range by a large demand of requests.
The delightful tree is covered with pure white flowers in mid spring, these are followed by very large fruits and are renowned for their delicious flavour. The tree is vigorous and has an upright habit, an ideal specimen tree for growing in a small, sunny and well-drained area.
