This is a twig for grafting. Late Summer. Unknown origin. Stacyville, Maine.
Medium-sized obovate-obtuse-pyriform pears are light yellow with an orange to greyish-red blush. The sweet fruit has a delicious citrusy aftertaste. Although the fruit is good fresh eating, we prefer to cook it. Precocious and productive. Our tree gives us large crops most years.
Long ago, friends told John about the pear and insisted he make the trip to Stacyville in southern Aroostook County. When he finally saw it himself, he thought the 50' vase-shaped tree was an elm. That tree, held together with cables, was extremely old but still bearing huge crops.
Appears to be self-pollinating. Disease resistant, extremely hardy and very vigorous. They don’t keep for long; use them up quickly! Rare. Z3.

The deadline for ordering scionwood is February 21, 2020, for shipment around March 16.
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.
