Description

These fertile seeds were harvested from locally grown fruit trees which produce one of the very best eating and storing pears. Important, you may not grow absolutely identical pears from these seeds, as fruits produced will vary in size, sweetness and taste greatly, but you should certainly get a lovely new cultivar as new varieties are produced by growing large numbers of seedlings and choosing the best. Very few fertile seeds are produced.

Sowing Advice

For best results, sow seeds as soon as you receive them in a cool place onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. These seeds can be very slow indeed to germinate, and sometimes they wait for spring before emerging whenever they are sown. Do not use any artificial heat in an attempt to germinate them as it may simply disrupt their germination mechanism. Please be very patient, and do not discard the seed pan, no matter how long it takes for germination to occur.
