Important: advice about pollination

How to grow Brandy perry pear trees

The main issue with Brandy is its tendency to over-crop, which can in turn cause the tree to lapse into biennial bearing - with heavy crops then light crops in alternate years. To prevent this happening, be sure to thin the fruitlets in the "on" year. This not only helps to prevent biennialism but can also improve the juice quality.

Botanical name
