As with many continental pears, Glou Morceau grows best in areas with dry climates and good levels of sunshine. A sheltered south-facing aspect will get the best results, and if these conditions are met it is a reliable cropper.
Glou Morceau is a moderately vigorous tree, and can sometimes set an over-heavy crop, in which case thin the fruitlets during June - this will reduce the burden on the tree and ensure better flavour and fruit size.
The pears should be picked before they soften on the tree.
