Doyenne Du Comice

This translates as 'Best on the market' and it really lives up to that name - on of the most wonderful pears that we sell. From France in the 1850's. Skin greenish yellow with an orange cheek when ripe. Medium to large fruit, slightly knobbly and perhaps a little russet and a long stem. Matures fairly late. Pollination by any other variety of our pears. Sorry we only had a handfull to sell this year.

Pollination Guide

  • Pollination is far simpler than most people think. Generally, unless self fertile simply get 2 or more different varieties in the same group (eg pears) to ensure adequate pollination. A more comprehensive explanation can be found in our Pollination Guide
