Pear Tree - 'Williams' Bon Chretien

Origin: Aldermaston, 1760s
Pear Type: Dessert
Flowering Group : 3
Rootstock: Quince A
Size : Maiden
Harvest : September


'Williams' Bon Chretien was renamed 'Bartlett' when taken to the U.S. from a nursery in Turnham Green run by a Richard Williams in 1797. How it had got there from its original site, Aldermaston in Berkshire, is not known. Lovely taste, hardy and reliable, but better suited to dryer areas. Now the world's most popular pear. 'Williams' Bon Chretien is self sterile, so requires a pollinator; see our section on Pollination Groups.


Supplier : R.V. Roger Ltd.

These 1- 2 year old plants are around 100cm high. They will grow up to over 3.5m.

All our pear trees, including 'Williams' Bon Chretien, 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.
