Saint Mathieu is a traditional cooking pear, originating from the border areas of northern France and Belgium.
The pears are not very palatable for eating fresh because the flesh is quite hard and tannic. However they come into their own when baked or stewed.
Next deliveries: December 2023 - February 2024.
Let me know when Saint Mathieu pear trees are back in stock.
If you do not hear from us by March you can contact us to pre-order for next autumn.
Saint Mathieu trees are naturally vigorous, and are traditionally grown on standard seedling rootstocks. Old trees get very tall and impressive.
