Black Pear Island at The Hive

In response to the horticultural and epicurean heritage of the County, one of  the islands includes a Worcester Black Pear Orchard. This heritage breed was common in the 16th Century, but is now extremely rare. The orchard, under planted with companion plants and herbs, provides a shady spot for a summers day and celebrates the local pear variety, which is also the County fruit of Worcester.
