Duchesse de Berry d’Ete Pear Scionwood


Duchesse de Berry d’Ete Pear Scionwood

This is a twig for grafting. Mid-Late Summer. Seedling from Commune of Saint-Herblain, Dept of Loire-Inferieure, France, 1827.

Very high-quality summer dessert fruit. Semi-fine, melting, juicy, sugary and aromatic. Medium-small roundish yellow fruit blushed red and covered with brown dots. Vigorous upright habit.

We’ve been on a mission to track down lost pears historically grown in Maine. Sometimes it feels a bit like looking for passenger pigeons, but then another one shows up. We found this one in a collection out west. We think it initially came to Maine from one of the large 19th-century nurseries in Rochester, NY.

Productive vigorous upright grower. Z4.

Additional Information


The deadline for ordering scionwood is February 19, 2021, for shipment around March 15.

We sell scions (scionwood) in two ways.
Each single 8" stick will graft 3 or 4 trees, and comes with a small paper ID label.
Scionwood by the foot (minimum order of 10 feet) will usually graft about 6 or 8 trees from one foot of scionwood.
You can graft right away or store it for later use. Stored properly, it will keep quite well for several weeks.

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