Pyrus communis 'Concorde' is an excellent choice for growing in Britain. It is a fairly new variety, being a cross between two classic varieties, 'Conference' and 'Doyenné du Comice'. It is reliable, yields good crops of well-flavoured fruit, and is well suited to growing in the British climate. The yellow-cream-colourd fruits bear similarities to 'Conference' pears in appearance, but inherit the flavor of 'Doyenne'.

Pyrus communis 'Concorde' is in flowering group 4. It is partially self-fertile, but yields are increased if a pollination partner is grown nearby. Choose other pear trees in the same flowering group.
