Winnal's Longdon is a heavy-cropping perry pear which produces a low tannin perry.  The pears are small and greenish-yellow.

How to grow

Winnal's Longdon is easy to grow, and can be pollinated by many other European pear varieties, including Beth, Conference, Comice, and Louise Bonne.

The main issue is a tendency to biennial bearing - you can prevent this by making sure you thin the fruitlets in late May, especially if there has been a heavy fruit set.
