I've decided that since pears like our soil and apples don't, then I'll just have to find pears that come in early and late and with as much variation as possible. I have some Europeans and some Asians, some have cropped. I have plenty of rootstocks, it seems a shame to order trees but I might wind up doing it. Variety and nursery recommendations would be appreciated. I know Seckel is supposed to be high quality, but I have never really liked the astingency of the skin on those few I've eaten. On the other hand, I guess that would be a plus for making wine. I have seen some incomplete lists of bloom times. Late bloomers would be a good idea. I have these already:
Twentieth Century collected locally, I really like this one
Tenn ditto very nice pear, though it doesn't seem to keep long. Does anyone know anything about it???
Ayers bought tree this year
Warren bought tree 12 years ago and it finally bloomed just in time for the Big Easter Freeze
probably Kieffer local source
Duchess one bud took this year
Duchess Bronzee ditto
Magness one small branch
Mericourt - 1938 Tennessee introduction that sounds really good
Moonglow? Is it really good?
