Barnet Pear Scionwood


Barnet Pear Scionwood

This is a twig for grafting. Fall. Mild-bittersweet perry pear. Found south of Gloucester, England, early 1800s, and later grafted and distributed by the Long Ashton Research Center in Bristol.

Small russeted egg-shaped fruit is greenish yellow and often blushed with orange-red. Fruits are easily shaken from the tree when ripe in early to mid-fall. Also called Hedgehog as the drops can resemble baby hedgehogs curled up in the grass.

Low in acid and tannin and a great sweet addition to perry blends. (S.G. 1.052) Scab resistant and precocious. Blooms late. Z4.

Additional Information


Scions are twigs, not trees. They have no roots and will not grow if you plant them.

The deadline for ordering scionwood is February 16, 2024, for shipment around March 11. (Please note: we ship scionwood only in mid-March. If you would like to order rootstock to arrive in the same shipment, select mid-March shipping when adding the rootstock to your cart.)

We sell scionwood in two ways:
By the stick: One 8" stick will graft 3 or 4 trees.
By the foot: For orchardists grafting large numbers of trees of a particular variety, we also offer scionwood by the foot (minimum order of 10 feet per variety). In our own nursery work, we are usually able to graft 6-8 trees from one foot of scionwood.

You can graft right away or store scionwood for later use. It will keep quite well for several weeks stored in sealed ziplock bags in the refrigerator.
