Fruits in Slovenia - The Williams Pear - 2004



  • The pear blossoms are borne in inflorescences of 6 to 8 flowers each and because of low sugar content are not very attractive to honeybees.
  • Pear Psylla (Cacopsylla pyricola) is the most serious insect pest of pears. Damage is caused by nymphs that develop primarily on tender new growth and feed by sucking sap from the developing buds, leaves and shoots.
  • The Williams Pear was discovered originally around 1770 by a schoolmaster from Aldermaston in England named Mr. Stair, the variety was further developed by Richard Williams, who introduced it to England as Williams` Bon Chretien (Williams` good Christian #8211; shortened to Williams Pear).
  • It is believed that the hedgehog put pear on his back and carried away in the lair.
