About Dwarf Garden Belle Pear (Delbuena) Trees

The humble Pear tree originally came from South East Europe/Asia Minor, and China.  The ancient Greek, Homer, famously described them as "gifts from the Gods".  The early Romans cultivated Pears and develop 50 varieties, which spread across Europe.

The Garden Belle Pear is a mid-Summer fruiter, producing sweet tear-drop fruit with a green, mildly russetted skin.  Inside, the white juicy flesh is deliciously sweet.  This tree is an attractive addition to an elegant or Mediterranean garden, as it has beautiful white spring blossoms.

The Garden Belle Pear is a compact dwarf variety that grows to 2.5 - 3 metres high.  It is an ideal tree for espalier.

Culinary Uses for Dwarf Garden Belle (Delbuena) Pears

Fresh Pears are more than just lunch box fillers.  Take dessert to the next level with spiced poached Pears, or bake them in a yummy, heart warming cake, or make your very own Pear and Ginger tea.  

For nibbles, squeeze lemon juice over fine slices of pear (arranged in a single layer on a serving dish).  Sprinkle over cracked pepper and parmesan shavings.  You won't be disappointed!

Growing Conditions - Dwarf Garden Belle (Delbuena) Pear Tree  

Pears thrive in sunny spots that are sheltered from wind and frost (which can damage spring blossoms).  It will also do best in fertile, well-draining soil.   Keep this tree well watered in hot, dry weather, when fruiting, and as it is getting established. 

Although Garden Belle is self fertile, we highly recommend planting it with another Pear or Nashi variety to improve fruit crops.   Companion plant Pears with Borage, Chives, Lavender, Nasturtium and Marigold.   Keep your tree well fed by applying compost and a small amount of Morganics fertiliser in autumn and spring. 

Pears can be susceptible to fungal diseases if grown in damp or humid climates. Keep on top of these to ensure a healthy tree and good harvest.

Pears require annual pruning to allow air circulation and sunlight into the centre.  This helps with the management of diseases and fruit production. Prune for shape if you are aiming for an espalier or topiary tree.  Remove dead, diseased or crossing branches, as well as branches growing towards the centre of the tree.   The general rule of thumb is to cut just above the point where the stem is growing off the main stem.  Cutting out the main centre stem will create a lower, more umbrella-shaped tree.

Climate and Seasonal Planting Information - Dwarf Garden Belle Pear Tree

Garden Belle Pears are best planted in areas with some winter chill and protected from hard spring frosts.  Plant your Pear tree in winter, when it is dormant.
