Concorde is a super pear variety, raised at East Malling Research station, introduced in 1977. The tree is very upright and compact, ideal also for training as a fan or espalier. It must not be picked too early as the flavour needs time to develop in the latter stages of ripening. It is a tree that crops well, with great regularity. Apart from Conference, it is the best pear ever raised in the UK. Like Conference it is reasonably self-fertile. However it does better still if it has a suitable pollinator.
