Pear Tree - Catillac

Origin: Farnce, before 1665
Pear Type: Culinary
Flowering Group : 4
Rootstock: Quince A
Size : Maiden
Harvest : September

Catillac is arguably the best culinary pear, which supposedly owes its name to Cadillac in the Gironde. It was described in France in the 1650s. Its fruit is best cooked or poached and stores well. It has a vigorous healthy habit and large round green fruit. Catillac is triploid - i.e. it needs two other varieties of pollinating trees nearby. See our section on Pollination Groups to help you select suitable pollinators.

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

All our pear trees, including Catillac, 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.
