A fruit tree that's also highly ornamental? That's the pear tree ‘Williams‘ in a nursery pot. We find it a joy to behold. Beautiful white flowers with fresh green leaves in spring, then the green-yellow pears appear before the leaves turn orange-red in autumn. The pear tree brightens up our garden. It goes without saying that the firm pears taste delicious. The ‘Williams‘ grows compactly. Hence the pear tree can also be planted in a pot on a patio, roof terrace or balcony.The fruit tree blossoms in spring. That's when it reveals its lovely white flowers. A crop will be ready to harvest from autumn onwards in the second year after planting. We prune the pear tree after it flowers. The pear tree grows in loose, fertile soil that we keep nice and moist. It's best to give the tree extra water during dry spells. Sufficient light is needed to ensure good growth, which is why we plant the fruit tree in full or half sun.
