PEAR TETTENHALL DICK

A very old and historic pear originating from Tettenhall in the Black Country. Tettenhall Dick was nearly lost to cultivation but has now reclaimed its historic popularity. For hundreds of years it was a very popular pear being not only self fertile and an exceptionally heavy cropper but the small pears were used for eating (if rather hard) to cooking making jams and chutneys as well as cider. It was so well known that Tettenhall Dicks, ‘ard as bricks” was a common saying in the area.

Our Pear Tettenhall Dick 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.

Available in economy and premium selection

Economy - rooted into its pot but a further season before moving up a pot size.
Premium - more growth in its pot. More mature than Economy
