The Flemish beauty Pear is a cultivar, introduced in Belgium back in the early years of the 18th century. The large round-shaped pears are yellow with red blushed skin. The trees produce a generous crop of sweet and fleshy fruit in September.
The plant is usually self-pollinated. However, another pear variety in the vicinity enhances pollination and fruit production. The fruit is excellent to be eaten fresh, packed or tossed into a fruit salad.
In season, the tree produces white and pink fragrant flowers which develop into the fruit.
Pruning of trees helps to remove the old and dead branches. This results in a fluffier tree with more energy for flowering and fruit production. Moreover, you can maintain the shape and size of the tree by regular pruning.
