Pear Tree - Hessle
Origin: Hessle, near Hull, 1827
Pear Type: Dessert
Flowering Group : 3
Rootstock: Quince A
Size : Maiden
Harvest : October
Certainly much older than its first recorded date, Hessle was also known as the Hazel pear. Its name connects it with the Yorkshire town of Hessle, now a suburb of Hull. It is the hardiest pear we sell, and will thrive in almost any situation. The fruit is juicy and sweet, but really best for cooking. Hessle is self sterile; see our section on Pollination Groups to find a suitable pollinator.
Supplier : R.V. Roger Ltd.
We donate half of our profit on sales of Hessle Pears to Common Ground
All our pear trees, including Hessle, 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.
