An old variety originating in Belgium around the mid 1800’s. Pear Emile D’Heyst is a reliable cropper with medium sized fruits. Green skinned when first picked with some russeting, stores well for a pear until November, turning to a warm green yellow when perfectly ripe. Tender moderately juicy flesh with a traditional pear flavour.  A good choice pear for colder districts.

Our Pear Emile D`Heyst bare rooted trees are lifted at the start of the bare root season in November, when the pear trees become dormant, and made available through to March the following year. This period is the ideal time for economical planting. You will however have to wait a year to pick your crop as bare root trees cannot be picked in their first year. For all year round planting why not choose from our selection of container grown pear trees. They do cost more but are older, more established and ready to crop.
We use and recommend planting with friendly myccorrhizal fungi such as Rootgrow. This helps to produce a stronger root system thereby aiding establishment. We also use and can supply Blood, Fish and Bone - a tried and trusted natural all round fertilizer. Alternatively, to help give your tree the best start you can incorporate our carefully blended mix of compost to help give your tree all the vital nutrients and minerals it needs to flourish in your garden. It is good practice to firmly secure and support your tree with a good stake and tie to aid in its establishment.
