Pear Masterclass – Experiences with new pear varieties

Future Orchards®

What are latest new varieties in Europe?

Join us this September for the annual Pear Masterclass where you will hear from international speaker, Dirk van Hees, a tree management and fertilisation consultant with Fruitconsult.

Over three 45 minute virtual sessions, Dirk will share videos and insights of the latest developments in pears in Europe.

At each session you will hear from a panel of Australian pear growers and experts who will review and provide a local perspective on the topic of discussion.

What you will learn in Session 2

In the last ten years a dozen of new pear varieties have been introduced into Europe. Dirk will discuss the most interesting new varieties that have been planted at the experimental farm Proeftuin Randwijk. He will outline the different growing experiences and the success of each variety.
