Growing and Training

Clement's pear is known for its heavy regular annual production, and excellent disease resistance.


Clement is a seedling of the well-known Williams or Bartlett pear, and is very similar to its famous parent, although it ripens slightly later, and seems more disease-resistant. It was discovered in the 1980s growing in the garden of Clement Lamarr, in northern France.
