Pyrus communis 'Winnals Longdon'
Fill in the form below and we will notify you when Winnals Longdon perry pear trees are back in stock. If we do not get any more this season you can contact us in June to pre-order for next season.
Winnal's Longdon is a heavy-cropping perry pear which produces a low tannin perry. The pears are small and greenish-yellow.
Winnal's Longdon is easy to grow, and can be pollinated by many other European pear varieties.
The main issue is a tendency to biennial bearing - you can prevent this by making sure you thin the fruitlets in late May, especially if there has been a heavy fruit set.

Winnal's Longdon was raised by Mr Winnal of Woodfield in the county of Herefordshire in the west of England in the 1790s.
