Pear – Beth (Pyrus communis) is a compact, deciduous fruit tree with oval, green leaves, orange-red in autumn, and small, scented, white flowers with a yellow star in the middle, blooming in spring. Small, conical-shaped fruit with pale-green to golden-yellow skin and creamy-white, juicy flesh is very tasteful and harvested in late summer and early autumn. Pear – Beth grows best in neutral, moist, well-drained soil, in full sun. It can withstand cold, but needs to be sheltered from harsh winds. Since it’s early-flowering, late frosts may damage flower buds. It needs another cultivar for pollination and requires regular pruning. Generally, pest-free. Attractive to butterflies and birds. Pear – Beth is a great pear tree that produces reliable, regular, and abundant crop of juicy fruit of good quality and sweet flavour. It is suitable for all training forms. Great for informal, cottage, and wildlife gardens. Perfect as a specimen plant.

Arundel Arboretum is a shrub and tree retail nursery with over 40 years of experience.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
