(Pear) (Old Home x Farmingdale 97) Produces a vigorous hardy well-rooted almost-standard-sized tree. Superior to Pyrus communis in numerous ways, and can be used for both European and Asian pears. We use “97s” for our Fedco catalog offerings. Z3/4.
We have two shipping options for rootstock:
Choose A for our regular late-March to early-May shipping window (to receive rootstock with other plants, if ordered). Choose B for mid-March (to receive rootstock with scionwood, if ordered).
Note: scionwood ships only in mid-March. If you order scionwood, and then select late-March to early-May shipping for your rootstock, they will be shipped at different times.
