This is a twig for grafting.Early Fall. SD E31 x Ewart. SD State U, 1967.
Produces annual crops of delicious medium-sized classic pear-shaped fruit. The soft fine extra-juicy off-white flesh is sweet and flavorful with almost no grit cells. Thin yellowish skin is covered with small tan dots.
Bears so heavily it can use support. Anecdotal evidence suggests that it may crop best when grown near Bartlett or one of the Asian pears. Will not pollinate other pears. Fireblight resistant. Z3.

Scions are twigs, not trees. They have no roots and will not grow if you plant them.
The deadline for ordering scionwood is February 18, 2022, for shipment around March 14. (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 ($5 each) 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 ($4.50/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.
