Pear Tree - Winter Nellis

Origin: Belgium, early 19th century
Pear Type: Dessert
Flowering Group : 4
Rootstock: Quince A
Size : Maiden
Harvest : Late October

Winter Nellis (or Nelis) has compact growth, and produces delicious late pears. It was raised by nurseryman Jean Charles Nelis in a hot bed of pear cultivation around the Belgian town of Mechelen (or "Malines" in French), and brought to Britain in 1818. I've also seen it spelt 'Nelis', and referred to as 'Bonne de Malines', the Quall Pear and the Honey Pear. Recommended, RHS AGM. Winter Nellis is self sterile, so requires a pollinator; see our section on Pollination Groups.

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

All our pear trees, including Winter Nellis, 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.
