Belgium, in circles of fruit lovers, is known for its perfect climate for the cultivation of pears. The Conference is one of our best-known export products. This pear is popular worldwide because of its reliable firmness, its unique taste pallet and its excellent freshness.
Yet this is not the only pear we grow and trade: Doyenné du Comice, Durondeau, Queen's Forelle, Early Desire and other species are also represented in our range. This is not surprising as each of these pears has its unique characteristics in terms of taste, availability and shelf life.

Conference is and remains one of Europe's most popular pears. An absolute classic and all-rounder that can be used in all kinds of ways, due to its sweet taste, white flesh and both crisp and juicy texture. Devos Group is one of the largest growers and traders of this pear.
Durondeau is a typical autumn pear appreciated by many lovers, young and old, because of its very pronounced fresh-sweet-sour flavour. It can be used for several purposes but certainly also as a dessert and stew pear.
Doyenné du Comice is not called the queen of pears for nothing. Not only because of its beautiful appearance but also because of its sweet taste and wonderfully soft texture, it is also widely used in cooking.
Since 2009, Devos Group has been growing and marketing the exclusive red Queen's Forelle pear. It is an innovative, fresh pear with a bright red colour. It has a sweet and aromatic flavour with crisp and fresh flesh. Queen's Forelle is most delicious when crisp; it is edible immediately after purchase. Queen's Forelle is also good for cooking as it is a hard, firm pear that does not fall apart when cooked. Queen's Forelle is a new variety under cultivation and is expected to be available from mid-November to April.
The Early Desire is an early autumn pear with a red blush. Just before Conférence, this pear is ripe for harvest, being early September and offers a perfect alternative for those who can't wait for the big harvest. Early Desire, an early desire, what's in a name?
Throughout the year we also offer other types of pear such as Lucas, Corina and cons. These fruits are only available for a few months. Do not hesitate to contact us to get to know the most recent offer!
