Pears flower two to four weeks earlier than apples and need slightly warmer conditions. They are very ornamental in flower, their branches often buried under a froth of white blossom. All pears are grafted on rootstocks which affect their size and vigour, and may be trained in a number of different shapes pruning depends on the tree form and vigour of the rootstock, and should be checked in a handbook. 'Durondeau' is an old Belgian variety, which makes a large and fruitful hardy tree. The crop is picked in October for use from November up to Christmas.
