Description

  • Beautiful white spring blossom
  • Delicious fruit with sweet melting flesh
  • Needs a pollination partner to produce fruit
  • Perfect for a patio pot

Dessert Pear 'Bonne Louise d'Avranches' has delicious sweet melting flesh with a characteristic pear flavour. This old-fashioned variety is still popular today. Grown as a pillar fruit tree, it’s perfect for a patio pot, with beautiful white blossom in spring.

Pear 'Bonne Louise d'Avranches' is not self-fertile, so needs a pollination partner to produce fruit. Plant it together with Pear ‘Conference’ or ‘Doyenne du Comice” for a harvest of sweet yellow-green fruits in late summer.

How you will receive your plants:

Pillar patio fruit trees are sent out from our nursery in pots.

Can’t plant straight away?

If you can’t plant your pillar patio fruit tree straight away, leave it in its pot in a sheltered spot and water regularly to stop the compost drying out.

Planting tips and hints:

Planting pillar patio trees in pots:

Choose a large pot, at least 30L (40cm diameter) and ideally 50L (55cm diameter), with good drainage holes. Place a layer of coarse gravel in the bottom of the pot to aid drainage. Avoid using black pots if possible as they will warm up too much in winter sunshine and can trigger the tree to start growing too early. Plant the tree in the pot using a loam-based compost like John Innes no 3. Apply a high-potash fertiliser in early spring.

To prune a pillar fruit tree, cut back all side shoots that are longer than 20cm to between 5-15cm long, cutting just above a bud. Prune once in late winter and again in mid-summer if growth is vigorous.

To test whether an apple is ready to harvest, cup it in your hand, lift and gently twist. If it comes away easily, it is ready to harvest.
