Pear Tree - Onward

Origin: Surrey, 1947
Pear Type: Dessert
Flowering Group : 4
Rootstock: Quince 'A'
Size : Maiden
Harvest : September

Onward is an excellent garden variety, delicious fruit, recommended. It counts the delicious but tricky 'Doyenne du Comice' among its forbears, to which it owes its taste. A much easier variety to grow, however! Onward is self sterile, so requires a pollinator; see our section on Pollination Groups. RHS AGM.

Supplier : R.V. Roger Ltd.

Your purchase helps us support a range of charities, which are related to the products we sell.

All our pear trees, including Onward, are bare root. At the height of the lifting season - between November and March - there may be up to a month's delay between placing the order and dispatching due to pressure of orders, which are dealt with in date sequence, and the weather. Orders for pear trees from March to September are confirmed in late October/ early November ready for dispatch from November. Please consult our planting and care guide on receipt of your order.
