Usually just called William's, this is a beautiful old pear variety - large, sweet, smooth and very juicy with the fruit turning from green to yellow when ripe. While it is a standalone, superb eating pear, Williams bon Chretien, which is partially self fertile, is also great for stewing or poaching.

It is a reliable, heavy cropping and hardy tree that is grown on a large scale on farms all over the world. It is more spreading than most pear trees.

Height: Up to 3m
