Pyrus communis ‘Doyenne Du Comice eating pear’

For sale by Susanne

This grower is sure of this plant identification.


I am selling a three year old pear tree ('Doyenné du Comice', AGM) that I have started to train as an oblique cordon. Unfortunately, the site I have chosen to grow it on is not as sunny as I had hoped, this is way I am looking for a new home for the tree. The tree is on Quince C rootstock.
I cannot upload a photograph as the website freezes every time I try. I can email a photograph to interested parties though.
